Belo Center for New Media
The University of Texas at Austin
Due to the continued growth and development of the College of Communication, The University of Texas at Austin set out to add a new state-of-the-art facility to reflect the changing nature of broadcast journalism and enhance collaboration between the various departments and the community.
The 112,000-square foot Belo Center for New Media serves as a prestigious gateway to The University of Texas campus in Austin. Utilizing materials common throughout the campus, the building establishes a visual link to the modernist design of the adjacent College of Communication complex while a pedestrian bridge physically connects the new campus addition.
The building includes studio and production facilities, multipurpose classrooms, lecture halls, research labs and collaborative public spaces that provide state-of-the-art facilities that encourage hands-on teaching, learning and research. In addition, the new facility is home to KUT Public Media Studios, integrating multi-media production facilities and highlighting Austin’s rich music scene.
