The Rockefeller Arts Center at SUNY Fredonia received an Architecture Merit award from AIA New York. The project renovated and expanded a 1968 arts building by I.M. Pei with new studios, workshops, and multipurpose spaces, and a new entrance. The building features a cantilevered dance studio with a monumental window wall, which allows the space to act as a beacon at night and makes the arts visible on campus. During the awards symposium, juror Brigette Shim called the project “thoughtful” and “well-resolved.” Congratulations to all our fellow winners!
