In the following computer-generated architectural renderings, trees have been removed to aid clarity. Pattern of paths is suggestive only (not a required part of design).

Looking West from Hicks parking lot:
Description: The "Pavilion on the Quad" scheme proposes the construction of a new 4 story building located in front of Dupont Hall. This new building will be linked to Dupont Hall at basement and first floor levels. The new building provides space for new Wet Labs and Mechanical Systems.
DuPont Hall is largely preserved and completely renovated, and a new large (200 seat) lecture hall is constructed adjacent to Cornell Science Library and the Physics wing of DuPont Hall. The roof of the lecture hall will form a new open plaza with views toward the Crum Woods.
A new Central Chilled Water Plant is constructed adjacent to the water tower).
A new addition in front of Cornell, linked to Martin Hall with a glass-enclosed connector on the second floor and a covered walkway on the first floor, provides space for Biology and other shared functions. There will also be a covered walkway linking Cornell with Dupont Hall.
Martin Hall has a new Mechanical Penthouse constructed, with infrastructure upgrades and selective renovation of areas adjacent to the central core of the building, as well as corridors and the Main Entrance.
Advantages: Centralizes New Program; enhances/activates North and West Edge of Quad; increased opportunity for fenestration; limited demolition.
Disadvantages: Reduces North Quad area; new building significantly taller than adjacent structures and campus norm.
