The University’s signature academic building is designed to promote the entrepreneurial spirit that characterizes the College of Business brand experience for both students and faculty. its prominent site expresses Bryant's forward-thinking curriculum and immersive creative culture.
The facility is organized around the Innovation Forum, an immersive, highly flexible space whose furnishings and whiteboards can be reconfigured to support various group learning activities, enabling collaborative hands-on discovery. Reinforcing the concept that the building belongs to the entire university rather than to a particular department, the program replaces assigned faculty offices with a flexible Faculty Workshop – including conference and storage space – that any faculty member can use whenever they are in the facility to work with students.
A café located near the building’s main entrance attracts students and faculty from all over campus, fostering opportunities for dialogue across disciplines.
