Stony Brook University Simons Center

Stony Brook, New York

Background

Since its opening in 2010, the Simons Center has given the world's top mathematicians and physicists the opportunity to interact in an environment designed specifically to enhance progress. The building and its programs were not compared to a typical academic facility. Instead, the design took cues from prominent research institutions and innovative companies that share similar functions in interdisciplinary thinking, collaboration, and research.
