Stony Brook University School of Journalism

Stony Brook, NY

Deftly inserted onto two floors of the Frank Melville Library, this Stony Brook facility provides an interactive workspace for journalism students to attend print, online and broadcast classes, and produce work across multimedia platforms of audio, video and text.

Lawrence Group teamed with newsroom system designer Harlan Neugeboren to create the ‘Newsroom of the Future’, featuring Apple workstations in re-configurable desks, theatrical lighting, ceiling-hung monitors with continuous news feeds, and a central teaching station. On a lower level, there are additional workstations equipped for digital video and on-line editing, a conference area, and a ‘flash studio’ and mini-control room for broadcast training.
