The tower's interior and exterior courtyards create informal spaces to meet and interact, complementing the large exhibition forums, studios, theatre and recreational facilities. Its design promotes a multidisciplinary environment by connecting the variety of programs within the School of Design, encouraging interaction between the many learning clusters and design disciplines.
