The Gruss Center for Art and Design (GCAD), a new student learning center at the Lawrenceville School, aims to nurture hands-on culture—a crucial element of the school’s pedagogy. This new, flexible learning space supports the school’s mission to foster creativity through group collaboration and dynamic testing spaces.⠀
Approximately 15,000 sf of work-focused spaces are slated to span three levels. GCAD will host a range of programming, including student engagement areas, maker spaces (including wood and metal shops, clean labs, and meeting rooms), large storage areas to accommodate the maker spaces, a 2,000 sf flexible room, as well as landscape spaces and plazas.
The project, which is part of The Lawrenceville School Master Plan and Implementation, is scheduled to open spring 2020.
