Posner Center

About the Building

Designed by Paul Whitehead of WTW Architects, the 11,400 square foot earth-sheltered building is unified throughout with "curved corners," apparent from the granite facade to the vaulted ceiling and the details of cabinetry and furnishings. Cove lighting and fiber optics illuminate the inviting and dramatic interior space. Posner Center opened in 2004.

The rooftop features the Kraus Campo, a meditative outdoor space created by alumnus artist Mel Bochner and landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh.
