Knowlton Hall, dedicated in 2004, is a state-of-the-art facility for the Knowlton School. The School's home is based on the integration of elements: inside and out, students and faculty, old and new, school and university, art and technology. Each of the three disciplines of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and City and Regional Planning are mixed. The design reflects the School's mission of excellence in education, innovation in design and planning, and the stewardship of quality environment.
Knowlton Hall marks an important entrance to campus and forms a nucleus of professional schools along with the College of Engineering and Fisher College of Business. The 165,000-square-foot facility houses all classrooms, facilities, and offices for Knowlton School's three disciplines. Students learn in the six classrooms, four seminar spaces, 200-seat auditorium, outdoor classroom spaces, and 500 studio spaces available to them. The building also features gallery space for exhibitions, central review space for critiques of student work, a materials/fabrication lab, an experimental roof garden space, a 30,000-volume library, two computer laboratories, a digital image library, and the KSA Café.
