The architectural design for the New Jersey Institute for Food, Nutrition, and Health (IFNH) housed on the George H. Cook Campus was honored with a 2013 Merit Award in the Unbuilt Category by AIA New Jersey, a chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The AIA New Jersey Annual Design Awards Program brings public and professional recognition to architectural projects that exhibit design excellence. Construction is underway on the New Jersey IFNH, a 80,000 square-foot interdisciplinary research facility that will bring together faculty members from complementary programs throughout the university, including Rutgers’ departments of food science, nutrition, public policy, pharmacy, exercise science and sport studies, genetics, agriculture and health sciences research. It will house several centers, including the Center for Childhood Nutrition Education & Research, dedicated to educating children about nutrition, and a specialized Student Health Center, which will provide advanced counseling for eating disorders and incorporate nutritional education as a part of health care. The IFNH building was designed by Ballinger Architects of Philadelphia, PA, and will be built to LEED-gold (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) specifications. See images and details of the building design in this flip book, and updates on the building construction on the IFNH website.
