"This area will have a strong pedestrian link and will establish an urban edge of the campus. The artist should be able to work with a design team and architects. Three locations have been identified as potential sites for artwork: screening around north east parking area, south outdoor green space and inside gathering spaces which includes the atrium and cafe.all materials are due Aug 28 2009
The new building is a three-story 110,000 square foot building designed to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design) certification. Designed to provide a professional business environment in which to educate students and engage the business community, the new building will provide public gathering space, a conference center, large auditorium, and visible and accessible centers for international business, entrepreneurship, nonprofit leadership, business development and consulting.
As such, it will be a focal point within the University that will invite individuals and organizations from the region to join YSU in ways that support economic and community development. The new building will bridge the university with the downtown community and become the high-profile ''southern entrance'' to the YSU campus."
