文字来自建筑师。盖茨大厅紧邻历史上著名的Barton大厅和Hoy Field棒球场,使原先未被充分利用的校园角落恢复了活力,形成新的校园入口和门脸。建筑悬挑式的入口雨篷覆盖着富有动感的不锈钢板材,遮蔽了一处户外广场,学生的社交空间周边设有当地的植物和雕塑。极具表现力的钢表皮以棱角分明的方式交织在一起并环绕整个立面,为教室提供遮阳保护,并构建出不断变化而又充满活力的表面。表皮的图案、几何形式和细节的设计都采用了先进的数字模型工具,这足以说明计算机技术对艺术和科学所产生的深远影响。

From the architect. Neighboring the historic Barton Hall and Hoy Field, Gates Hall re-energizes a previously underutilized campus corner, creating a new campus gateway and frontage. Surfaced in vibrant stainless steel panels, the building’s cantilevered entry canopy covers an outdoor plaza and student social space also defined by native landscaping and sculptural forms. The performative steel skin wraps the exterior façade in an angular weave, shading interior classrooms and creating a continuously dynamic and transformative surface. Advanced digital modeling tools used in designing the pattern, geometry, and details of the skin speak to the profound impact of computing on the arts and sciences.

The building program is organized to foster serendipitous social and academic exchanges, extending education beyond traditional classroom settings. Primary circulation is organized around a glazed atrium on the west side of the building where a full-height glass facade, skylights, and interior envelope of fritted glass reveal a nexus of activity on all floors. Ringed with informal study and collaborative spaces, the atrium provides literal and visible connections across disciplines. Encounters and impromptu charettes are facilitated by regular alcove spaces in the corridors, where the floor-to-ceiling glazing lining classrooms and offices becomes a transforming canvas for graphics, blackboard equations, and casual notes.

Gates Hall’s integrated sustainability systems express Cornell’s commitment to environmental stewardship, using multiple strategies to create healthier environments, reduce energy consumption, and preserve natural resources. Designed for ample daylight penetration, Gates Hall employs openness and transparency to create work environments that are more healthful for students, both physically and mentally. The high-performance glass façade, perforated metal shading screens, and mechanical system using campus lake-source cooling contribute to Gates Hall achieving 30% lower energy usage than a typical academic building. To decrease the environmental impact of construction, local/regional, recycled and renewable building materials are used throughout the building
