When the new structure is finished, it will have a residence tower and new studios while the base will become a “living room” for Cornish; it’s all becoming very real.

Go out and stand on the corner of Terry and Lenora; right in front of you, the dream is becoming a reality shaped in steel and concrete. It’s a major new building for Cornish, and when it’s complete, it will change the way life is lived on campus. What you’ll see is that the principal work is complete on the lower portion of the building. Time to step back and truly absorb what a difference it’s going to make in the day-to-day life of students. Take a “design appreciation” moment to study how the mass of this base matches the mass of Cornish’s Notion Building across the street.

Read more about the new building.

The first floors, which includes a public space with an incredibly high ceiling and open to the outdoors, has been envisaged as a “living room” for the College. It will be a place for hanging out, running into friends, studying, and generally living the student life. When you say “meet me at Cornish,” this is where you’ll mean. Above this area will be a number of meeting spaces, classrooms, and studios. With the base done, work will begin in earnest on the residential portion of the building, which will bring it to 20 stories in all.

While you’re at the Main Campus, drop into the Admission office and see the architects’ incredibly well executed model of what the whole deal will look like when it’s done.
