Tucked into the center of a New York City block, this landscaped terrace provides a campus commons for @johnjaycollege. Above the lawn, a 14-story tower, built to accommodate increased enrollment, holds classrooms, labs, auditoriums, and offices, and connects to the school’s original building. Fritted glass panels and vertical fins create a staggered pattern along the facades, reflecting the surrounding urban tapestry of Manhattan’s Far West Side.
