Northwestern University released finalized renderings of the Kellogg School of Management's new lakefront business school during an official design presentation Wednesday. Early mock-ups surfaced in March 2012 but the look has changed considerably: more focused, if limited, curves; an extra 60,000 square feet of classroom and administrative space (a total of 410,000); a defined central courtyard and main approach; a dramatic atrium w/ zigzagging walkways; and a two-story lake-facing "campus conservatory" for presentations and, every businessman's favorite, the black tie event. Toronto-based Kuwabara, Payne, McKenna, Blumberg Architects (KPMB) is seeing the project through to its projected 2016 completion.
