Ann Beha Architects design reflects both heritage and innovation 

The new home for the Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding at Princeton University, designed by Ann Beha Architects has broken ground. The design presents a striking contrast between old and new.

The project revives an historic Italianate-style landmark, and juxtaposes it with a contemporary addition, collectively creating spaces for new events and programs in conjunction with the Fields Center’s academic and community programs. The center transforms a former independent student eating and dining facility to a center for academic programs and community service. The restored building provides community tutorial facilities, seminar rooms and offices. The new wing accommodates lectures, exhibitions, Center programs and social events. Sustainability features used throughout the design have achieved a level commensurate with LEED Silver Certification.
