To get a sense of how much more space there is in the new law school and residence hall at Lincoln Center, you need only gaze south from the bottom floor of the dormitory, and realize that you’re eye level with the roof of the Lowenstein Building.
When it opens in the fall of this year, the complex will include 430 beds in the upper level, along with kitchen facilities, a small movie theater, and a dance studio with views of Avery Fisher Hall just to the north. The 10 lower floors, meanwhile, will double the current academic and administrative space of the law school. With four wide-open spiral staircases connecting various floors and a bi-level library housing 100,000 volumes, the new building promises to be a vision of movement, interaction, and collaboration.
