ARC605 | Fall 2014

The Innovation Center is a business incubator, a place for people with ideas to start companies related to research and development. Using data collected from post occupancy evaluations of the current innovation center, major ideas that were present in that design were modified to fix portions that were under used. The design, placed on a 1,500 car parking garage that also acts as an active transportation hub to the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus of Buffalo, NY, stresses the connection between different companies and their relation to each other through a hierarchy of spaces. The main atrium acts as a services hub and an informal meeting space to the office spaces.
