Juliana Curran Terian Pratt Pavilion: Gallery Interior: hanrahan Meyers architects
Pratt Institute will hold a public dedication ceremony at its new Juliana Curran Terian Design Center on the Brooklyn Campus at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 17, 2007. The event will celebrate the completion of the center's new pavilion and honor Juliana Curran Terian, a Pratt alumna and trustee, for her generous $5 million gift - the second largest gift from a living individual in Pratt's 120-year history-which made the construction of the building possible.
The completion of the new building, designed by hanrahan Meyers architects (hMa), marks the first step in bringing together under one roof all of Pratt's design disciplines- interior design, fashion design, industrial (product) design, and communications design- to offer graduate and undergraduate creative minds a modern center where they can cultivate new ideas in a collaborative setting that fosters interdisciplinary research and learning initiatives among the different design programs.
