Fordham University’s new Law School and Residence Hall, designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, with Henry N. Cobb and Yvonne Szeto as collaborating design partners, will be dedicated at a ceremony on Fordham’s Robert Moses Plaza on September 18. Former New York City mayor Michael R. Bloomberg will deliver the keynote address, and Hon. Sonia Sotomayor, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, will cut the ribbon. The competition-winning design is the centerpiece of the first phase of Fordham’s 15-year master plan for its Lincoln Center campus. The project consists of a 22-story building, clad in a curtain wall of architectural precast panels, metal, and glass, shaped with a series of undulating arcs to make an engaging gesture toward Lincoln Center while providing a distinctive identity for the Law School. The latter is housed in the lower nine stories, with a residential tower for 430 undergraduates rising above.
