Ithaca College Events Center

Created to reflect the surrounding environment, the competition-winning plan for Ithaca College Events Center is a model of sustainable design and building practices. The LEED Silver certified facility is composed of locally sourced building materials and many of its unique architectural features were designed to conserve energy and promote the environment. Natural ventilation and cooling systems are used through the entire architectural form and the monumental entry tower concentrates wind flow to promote air circulation and dramatically decrease energy requirements.

CD+M designed a sustainable, maintenance-conscious lighting scheme for the center’s public spaces, natatorium, fitness spaces, exterior facades and site and the tower.
