Stanford Universityís Graduate School of Business moved into their new home, the Knight Management Center, a vibrant, contemporary learning complex, in early 2011.  Featuring eight buildings, an underground parking facility and central plaza, the multi-function complex respects Stanfordís architectural tradition while providing greater transparency to showcase the collaborative culture of the GSB.

Academic and lecture spaces in the complex range from intimate meeting rooms to a 600-seat auditorium that serves both Stanford and the larger community, attracting visitors to lectures, films and conferences.  FDA ensured optimal sightlines in the room and equipped it with sophisticated projection technology and lighting systems. Natural light can be let in or blocked as needed for the type of event being held.

The Knight Management Center achieved LEED Platinum status.
