Olin Business School
BUILDING OLIN: A Foundation of Excellence

All architecture is shelter, all great architecture is the design of space that contains, cuddles, exalts or stimulates the persons in that space.
— Philip Johnson, Architect, 1906–2005

​About the building

  • The 102,000-square-foot Knight Hall will extend to the east from the Knight Center and provide a grand entryway to the business school from Throop Drive.
  • A two-story glass portal positioned under a glass-walled meeting room on the third level creates a transparent vista into Knight Hall and through the new ensemble of buildings to the campus level.
  • A landscaped terrace opposite the entrances to Knight Hall and the Knight Center will allow for easy access and room to admire the pleasing archways and stonework of the buildings.
  • Building will meet Washington University's standard of LEED Silver; goal is to achieve LEED Gold Certification.

In recent years, the Olin School has become a recognized global leader in business education. Additionally, the school and all of Washington University are vitally important assets in so many ways for St. Louis. We are pleased to support the Olin School's continued growth, both for its international impact and for its importance in our community.
