Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY
The new Student Development Center has been designed to enhance NTID’s role as a provider of a high quality education and career enhancement for the deaf and hearing impaired.
The functional requirements of the Center include teaching, working, and social spaces for use by individuals at the college. The Student Development Center is the center point for student activity at NTID and is strategically located between classroom spaces and the dining hall.
Spaces have been developed which encourage student interaction, impromptu meetings, and learning outside of the classroom. The building acts not only as a link between two buildings, but as an opportunity to link students with other students, with resources, and with undiscovered talents within themselves.
