The project is an anchor and the true center of learning for the undergraduate, graduate and PhD programs for the Biblical Theological Studies Department. Glass enclosed classrooms and pods of faculty offices are planned around Solatube and regular skylights allowing natural light where otherwise there would be none. Visual connection between spaces and the integration of archaeological museum displays foster a collaborative spirit and interconnected identity.
”This is the place that moors a college…” Jill Peláez Baumgaertner, Dean of Humanities and Theological Studies (From her poem “Moving Up,” read at building dedication ceremony on 10/05/13)
