László Z. Bitó '60 Conservatory Building


The László Z. Bitó '60 Conservatory Building, a gift from László Z. Bitó and Olivia Carino, is a freestanding, 16,500-square-foot structure that is connected to the Avery Arts Center's music wing by a covered walkway. Designed by Deborah Berke & Partners Architects LLP, the building is scheduled for completion in January 2013, and will be used primarily by students in The Bard College Conservatory of Music. Facilities include a 145-seat performance space that can be configured several ways, allowing students to reimagine the traditional concert space; 15 teaching studios; a lounge; and a large classroom. The Bitó Conservatory Building also has one-touch audio and video recording and live streaming capabilities.
