Project profile: Heimbold Visual Arts Center

Apr 30, 2005

The Monika A. and Charles A. Heimbold Visual Arts Center at Sarah Lawrence College brings together the visual arts in one dynamic interdisciplinary environment at this progressive, liberal-arts institution. In addition to establishing a new place for the arts on campus, the College sought a leadership role in creating a building that is rooted in the fundamental principles of sustainable design.

The Sarah Lawrence campus is characterized by undulating topography, dramatic rock outcroppings, and dense foliage. To reduce the impact to the site and blur the distinction between exterior and interior, the new building is integrated into the topography of the existing hilltop.
