The University of Chicago’s new business school building, designed by Rafael Vinoly who was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1910 Robie House across the street, is oriented around a six-story, glass-and-steel atrium that acts as the school’s “living room." The social space has helped change the view that the business school is a haven for math geeks and social misfits, said Stacey Kole, a deputy dean. “We’re working hard to break that perception,” Kole said. “When you come to campus, you see more activity. It’s a much more positive place to be.” [Bloomberg]
