Marist College
Dyson Center

Our four-story building for the School of Management and School of Social and Behavioral Sciences incorporates a new building with portions of an existing building, preserving resources and limiting the footprint of the new building.  

While supporting specific programs for 500 students, the design also offers common ground for the College community. A central oak-lined atrium connects four levels of program spaces, including a café, the Career Center, the Investment Center, a STEM classroom, a mock courtroom, a lecture hall, and open collaborative study settings. Workplaces for 100 faculty and administrators are companioned with 30 classrooms and seminar spaces designed to meet the changing needs of the College’s academic programming.
