It is the first of three main buildings in the $2 billion Cornell Tech campus on New York’s Roosevelt Island. Part of former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s 2011 initiative to make the city a global hub for technology development, the campus is a joint venture between Cornell University in Ithaca, New York State, and Israel’s Technion University which has been temporarily housed in Google’s New York building since 2012.

Bloomberg Center by Morphosis Architects

“It’s a complex structure that is really rich in space and light. The sustainable aspects are quite good, and the public and private spaces flow nicely.”
—juror architect Enrique Norten, Hon. FAIA

The Progressive Architecture (P/A) Awards recognize unbuilt projects demonstrating overall design excellence and innovation. Judging took place in December 2016. Winning entries were published in the February 2017 issue of ARCHITECT, and honored at a celebration in New York in February 2017.

Due to complete later in 2017, the Bloomberg Center is the first of three main buildings in the Cornell Tech campus on Roosevelt Island. The campus is a joint venture between Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y., and Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.

The Bloomberg Center proper will house research, teaching, and meeting space for graduate-level STEM students and faculty; the other two buildings will, respectively, offer university housing and offices for companies working with Cornell’s various science departments.

Designed by Morphosis Architects (Culver City, LA, and New York City), the 150,000-sqft Bloomberg Center sits along a north-south axis on a narrow plot at the western side of the 12-acre campus, and is organized around an entry lobby that aligns with 57th Street in Manhattan, visually tying the campus back to the city.

A monumental staircase oriented toward Queens, to the east, rises from the first floor—which features an auditorium and two large lecture halls—up through the center’s four additional levels, which are populated by open-plan classrooms along the building’s western edge and smaller private meeting rooms and faculty offices to the east.

As part of the campus’ overall sustainability mandate, the Bloomberg Center aims to be a net-zero energy consumer: Its roof features an overhanging “energy canopy” with a solar array that also shades a roof terrace; the building also sports a geothermal well system and a rainwater collection tank.
