CDC Tom Harkin Global Communications Center

The four story Tom Harkin Global Communications Center provides state-of-the-art meeting space, a hub for distance learning, and a place for visitors to study and learn about public health. The Visitors Center welcomes visitors, introduces them to the world of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and provides a secure gateway to the campus. The complex includes a conference facility and information center that provides learner-centered auditoria and classrooms equipped with technology for multimedia communications; production studios with satellite broadcast, interactive video and Internet webcast capabilities; a secure communications and control center; and a joint Emory University/CDC program office. Additionally, a learning resource center and public health library are open to students and visiting scientists. The complex also includes a parking deck to accommodate 1,100 vehicles.

This is the recipient of an Outstanding Designs: Specialized Award from American School & University magazine’s Architectural Portfolio competition, 2006.
