IBM Management Development Center - Armonk, NY

  • The corporate world headquarters for IBM is situated on a rural, wooded campus in Westchester County, New York. Part of the complex houses a management educational facility comprised of six buildings designed by the Modernist Architect Eliot Noyes over twenty years ago. Each structure is clad in indigenous stone and surrounded by rustic walls, rock outcroppings, and native landscape. As part of a multi-disciplinary project team, IQ developed a plan to restore the overall site and individual courtyards of each dormitory building and the main conference center. A palette of native and deer-resistant plant material was introduced in the courtyards, creating a woodland garden retreat for corporate students and IBM executives.  Lawn areas currently being mowed were restored to either low maintenance meadows or woodland forest, recalling the property’s original character. Meandering paths functionally and visually link buildings and parking facilities on this very rugged site.
