Show project description

Hancock Center, Marist College

The new 57,664 sq. ft. home for School of Computer Science and Mathematics
occupies a prominent site at the heart of Marist College’s campus, which sits atop
a bluff overlooking the Hudson River and its magnificent valley. The Hancock
Center carries forward the quiet Gothic architectural tradition established by the
Marist Brothers at the turn of the 20th century, with its rustic stone walls, red brick
window surrounds, and limestone detailing.

The Hancock Center is organized by an “L”-shaped plan that improves the
definition of two of the campus’s green spaces, the Hudson Meadow and the
Quadrangle. The main entrance is located at the base of a generous stair tower
that serves as a beacon for the college, visible from the campus entry gate and
from across the river. A second entrance off the Meadow offers 24-hour access
to the building’s three computer laboratories. To the west, a three-story wing
provides offices for faculty and administrators as well as conference and seminar
rooms; a lower level tucked into the slope of the site accommodates offices and
computer labs. The north wing houses technology development suites on the
ground floor and two levels of classrooms above.

The project was one of five projects in all of New York state to be awarded with an
Build New York award by the Associated General Contractors.
