WHY THIS MATTERS:
The new Thunderbird School of Global Management facilities at Arizona State University is being heralded as the "most technologically advanced building of any leadership, management or business school in the world," sporting a wide array of high-tech features, including a virtual reality studio and a ceiling-mounted digital glove. "The biggest goals we had was just to make sure it was very forward-thinking and flexible for what they needed to accomplish and then anything in the foreseeable future we could come up with, we could make work," notes Nathaniel Holland, a tech consultant on the project team.
