Building Innovation - UVA Today Features Contemplative Commons

UVA Today highlighted the construction and renovation that ramps up during the summer and featured CSC's Contemplative Commons.

"The new home of UVA’s Contemplative Sciences Center is designed to bring students and faculty from different schools and disciplines together, foster collaboration and experiment with new ways of teaching and learning. The 57,000-square-foot building, which should be completed in the fall, includes studios of varying sizes for academic and co-curricular contemplative activities as well as research spaces for in-context research. The south wing of the building incorporates a rooftop bridge on the third level connecting to pedestrian bridges extending east across Emmet Street and west to the McCormick Road residence halls, creating a new ADA-approved connection from Newcomb Plaza to the west Grounds."
