The Culinary Institute of America

  • The Marriott Pavilion

    In 2014, the CIA unveiled the new Marriott Pavilion with its new Conference Center and Ecolab Auditorium. Made possible by generous gifts from the The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation this new 31,000 square foot facility was specifically designed to advance culinary education, industry-wide innovation, and the arts.

    As a meeting place, the 800-seat Ecolab Auditorium and 300-seat Conference Center will be host to the world’s most dynamic exchanges about food, flavor, health, and culture.

    Featuring works of art like Lou Dorfsman's Gastrotypographicalassemblage and two of Arcimboldo's Four Seasons, the Pavilion will enhance the scope and educational experience of our students. As a gathering place, the facility will open its doors to friends and neighbors of the college.
