The New Kellogg School of Management Building

Project Status: COMPLETED

Construction start: April 2014
Completion: 2017

The Kellogg Global Hub, located on the Evanston lakefront campus (at 2211 Campus Drive, Evanston, IL), is a new, state of the art education facility for the New Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. It is designed to expand the interactive and social values of business education in a creative, collaborative, team-based environment. The overall shape and orientation respond to the scale of the campus as well as the force and power of Lake Michigan to the east, and the iconic Chicago Skyline to the south.

The building’s tiered, cantilevered, and fluid form gives the sense of structure in motion against the shore of Lake Michigan.The sculpted, undulating form weaves around the building, revealing multi-level terraces and interstitial spaces that foster informal social activity and cross-pollination. Navigating the interior delivers an equally fluid experience.The interior is connected visually through a series of openings that facilitate circulation and visual transparency. The project was organized to foster serendipitous social and academic exchanges, extending education beyond traditional classroom settings.

The building reinvigorates and leads discussion around the values and meaning of business education.It will further Kellogg’s mission to educate, equip and inspire the next generation of leaders who will challenge convention, reshape the practice of business and inspire growth in themselves and others.
