MNLA has been working with Pratt Institute for over 35 years which has resulted in multiple projects on campus at different sizes and scales.
In response to Pratt's unprecedented growth over the past 15 years, a new building houses administrative and academic functions. Located outside of the main campus, MNLA's design creates a welcoming and identifiable link between the established south campus and growing north campus. A gently sloping gradient brings visitors up to the elevated interior through a generous open space, fusing a series of rooms defined by shade trees, seating groups, and sculpture that seamlessly integrate best practices of sustainable site design.
"524 Myrtle serves as a model of sustainable design for Pratt students, the local community, and urban campuses across the country." President Thomas Schutte
Myrtle Hall is the first academic building with LEED Gold certification in New York State.
