SOM(Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM))设计的约翰杰伊刑事司法学院大楼这个月初刚刚举行了剪彩仪式。这座625000平方英尺的建筑位于纽约第11大道上,介于第58和第59大街之间,令一座城市单体建筑具备了一个传统学院校园所需的所有功能,增加了教室、实验室、礼堂、教师办公室和学生休息室,使建筑的规模增加到约翰杰伊学院原来教育设施的两倍。下面是更多图片与项目描述。

新建筑的设计重视学院对教学与社会空间的需要,形成了统一的学术氛围。“我们为约翰杰伊学院设计的这座建筑基本上在一座建筑内满足了整个校园的所有需求,”SOM设计合伙人Mustafa K. Abadan(FAIA)解释说。“通过我们设计的社交空间和屋顶露台,学生们现在有了更多互动与会面的机会,这对教育来说非常重要。”

约翰杰伊刑事司法学院是建校于1964年的纽约城市大学的一部分,学院每年招收15000名学生,教授应急反应、审判心理学和网络安全等课程。在这座新建筑建成之前,约翰杰伊学院主要位于Haaren大厅和北大厅,前者是一座20世纪早期建筑,面对第10大道,后者原来是一间制鞋工厂,位于西59街上。学院已经稳定扩张有一段时间了,自纽约“9•11”事件后,生源突然急剧增加,已经超过了学校所能承受的最大范围。这座新建筑是约翰杰伊学院成为纽约城市大学高等学院的一个重要组成部分,表现了学院继续从事“司法教育”的决心。

新建筑包括一个500英尺长的四层基座和一座14层的塔楼。基座与Haaren大厅相连,可以在其中进行众多的社会和学院活动。基座屋顶上是65000平方英尺的景观露台,是校园的公共区域。塔楼被称为“立方体”,其中容纳了教师办公室、学术区域、一个会议中心和教学实验室。新建筑的规模与第11大道上其他相邻建筑的规模相似,从西侧高速公路上看去非常显眼。


The ribbon cutting ceremony for John Jay College of Criminal Justice, designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM), just took place early this month. Located in New York on 11th Avenue between 58th and 59th Streets, the College’s new 625,000-square-foot building provides all the functions of a traditional college campus within the confines of a single city block and doubles the size of John Jay’s existing facilities by adding classrooms, laboratories, auditoriums, faculty offices, and student lounges. More images and project description after the break.

The new building addresses the College’s need for instructional and social spaces and creates a unified academic presence for the institution. “We designed a building for John Jay College that essentially accommodates the needs of an entire campus within a single building,” explains Mustafa K. Abadan, FAIA, Design Partner at SOM. “With our social cascade and rooftop terrace, the students will now have more opportunities for the interaction and chance encounters that are so essential to education.”

John Jay College of Criminal Justice, part of the City University of New York since 1964, educates 15,000 students annually in emergency response, forensic psychology, and cyber security. Before the construction of the new building, John Jay College was primarily located in Haaren Hall, an early 20th century building fronting 10th Avenue and North Hall, a former shoe factory on West 59th Street. The college had been steadily expanding for some time and, after the September 11th attacks on New York, enrollment increased dramatically to the point where the school outgrew its facilities. The new building is a critical component of John Jay’s transformation into a senior college of The City University of New York system and is an expression of the College’s continued commitment to “educating for justice.”

The new building consists of a four-story, 500-foot long podium and 14-story tower. The podium, which provides connections to Haaren Hall, contains dense social and academic programs and is topped by a 65,000-square-foot landscaped terrace that will act as a campus commons. The tower, known as “the cube,” contains faculty offices, academic quads, a conference center, and instructional laboratories. The scale of the new building is similar to its adjacent buildings along 11th Avenue and provides a strong visual presence for the College from the West Side Highway.
