Pagoda at Charles B. Wang Asian American Center at SUNY Stony Brook

Charles B. Wang, founder of Computer Associates, will have a student center dedicated to teaching SUNY Stony Brook students about Asian culture opening this spring. The building is designed by P.H. Tuan (who happens to a great-uncle by marriage), and the abstracted pagoda, as pictured above, seems more lovely as a form, more so than the building as a whole, but the indoor pool is cool.

The opening of the center was attended by Governor Pataki, with master of ceremonies, our favorite Chinese local reporter, Ti-Hua Chang, of WNBC.
