A linear atrium unifies the College. its interior multi-level street brings daylight to the middle of the building and provides clear, intuitive access to all of the major spaces. Configured as a series of terraces, the atrium also is the primary gathering place for students and a connector between academic spaces and faculty offices.

Program elements include teaching and administrative space for general education, allied health, culinary arts and early childhood development; a multi-story media center; cafeteria, bookstore and small business center; as well as community spaces including an art gallery and meeting rooms.
