CAPA is housed in a state-of-the-art facility designed by award-winning architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien. It blends the studio of the artist, the laboratory of the scientist, the think tank of the policymaker, and the town square of the citizen.
CAPA is a 15,000-square-feet complex of three buildings nestled along the central meadow of Bennington’s campus.
The 80-seat conference room, the Symposium, was modeled after the United Nations to facilitate discussion and deliberation.
CAPA has two classrooms, called Design Labs, designed for collaborative work.
