About the Smith Center:
The new Smith Campus Center is a radical reappraisal of the existing ten-story building on the site of the Holyoke Center designed by Josep Lluis Sert in the 1950s. It is part of an ongoing university “Common Spaces” initiative designed to ensure its physical spaces foster the campus’s intellectual, cultural, and social experience and support the wider community.

The project reconfigures the first, second, and tenth floors, reinterpreting the history and logic of Sert’s architecture in a series of additions to, and removals from, the existing fabric to create a family of new internal spaces interspersed with a captured internal and external landscape.
