The College of Business at Texas A&M University Corpus Christi integrates carefully into the campus providing a unique identity for the business school. The project includes classrooms, computer labs, executive education, business incubators and faculty and administrative offices. The building’s curved eastern façade embraces the adjacent Lee Plaza and enhances this existing amenity by providing definition to the space. In addition, the primary entry space for the project has been placed on axis with Lee Plaza.
Entries on each side of this space reinforce the geometry of the plaza and create the opportunity to extend its axis through the heart of the new building and out to future Campus development to the west. Because the campus is located on Texas’ Gulf coast, the threat of hurricanes is prevalent. Building orientation and selection of materials that are resistant to both wind and salt are also important design considerations.
Construction Total: $19 Million
