The building's proposed form and landscape are intended as a green urban intervention which will serve as an anchor to the connective corridor between downtown Syracuse and Syracuse University. The new facility will provide laboratory, classroom, and office space for the Syracuse Center of Excellence. Counter to a traditional introverted research lab, the Center of Excellence laboratories open themselves up to the surrounding city.
