Brown Univeristy, ICERM
A spirit of collaboration defines the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) at Brown University. One of eight National Science Foundation Mathematical Sciences Research Institutes, ICERM’s mission is to support and broaden the relationship between mathematics and computation.
On the top two floors of a downtown Providence office building, we transformed existing law offices into 16,500 SF of collaborative work environments, offices, and lecture hall facilities. Environments for this residency and research facility promote individual and collaborative work, including writable surfaces for computation and shared work.
The 100-seat lecture hall, defined by tall ceilings and spectacular views of downtown Providence, incorporates a glowing glass wall which supports technology for formal presentations. The wall doubles as another writable surface outside the hall for collaborative discussion.
