Drexel Korman Center Opens

This addition and renovation to the former 1958 University Library transforms and extends the current Computer lab and classroom building into a new student center. A 1,500 square-foot addition faces the University’s renovated Academic Quad, and includes student study, lounge and common spaces, and a multi-purpose event space. 

A terra cotta screen gives the Korman Center a new identity by creating a “front porch” that engages the Quad and the indoor ‘living room’ for the students. The screen is cantilevered off the face of the building shading the ‘porch’ and the south-east façade. The double height facade bifurcates the double height space of the porch and interior volume, emphasizing the transparent and accessible relationship of the Center to the Quad.
