is a 63-year-old, nationally recognized, college preparatory school in Rochester, NY whose mission is to inspire young men to pursue excellence in all things, service to others, and a life-long commitment to justice. When the school determined the need to expand their S.T.E.M. studies, in addition to common requirements and aspirations expressed during the programming phase (daylighting, views, energy efficiency, etc.), there were program goals particular to the school and intended to reinforce this mission. While requiring state-of-the-art equipment and supportive technologies to challenge and inspire the students there was a stated goal for the environment to support individuals and small or larger groups of different learning styles and to encourage social interaction, cross-cultural awareness, and a sense of community.
The result of the school’s vision is The Wegman Family Science and Technology Center, 39,900 square foot learning environment offering flexible and adaptable education spaces planned around a central community hub of informal interaction, collaboration and reflection spaces. The building provides for a range of classroom configurations and teaching dynamics both inside and out. The tiered ground floor connects to the Commons, a new exterior tiered gathering space linking the Wegman Center with the campus cafeteria, gymnasium, field house and playing fields in a space that is popular with students, faculty, parents, and alumni.
The Wegman Center is clad in glass and variegated metal panels the color and scale of which relate to the existing red brick campus while simultaneously displaying a sleek, angular, and thoroughly modern design befitting the progressive program it contains. The completed building and grounds have been extremely successful, offering the McQuaid Jesuit campus a bright, dynamic, and attractive hub of campus connectivity which had long been missing from the academic experience.
