SUNY Polytechnic Institute

Formerly SUNY Institute of Technology (SUNY IT)

 

Student Center

 

QPK Design was the Architect and Landscape Architect for this new $12.8M, 43,000 SF Student Center located on the campus of the SUNY Institute of Technology in Utica. The landscape architectural design forms a major role in the success of this project by uniting the architecture of SUNY IT and creating identifiable exterior spaces necessary for a vibrant college campus.

 

Responding to the organizing elements established in the Campus Master Plan, the new Student Center is positioned immediately adjacent to the intersection of the “arc” and “spine”. The “spine” relates to an axial link from the existing Campus Center, aligning with the footbridge across the ravine, to the center of the academic and administrative core of the campus. The “arc” refers to a linear pedestrian-based development pattern running from the west to the northeast, on which current and future administrative, academic and recreational buildings are or will be located.

 

Site Improvements included new parking for 450 cars, access drives, walkways, entrance courts, dining patio, lighting, site furnishings, a seat wall and plantings.
