Project Description

Four-story, 136,000 SF academic building with classrooms, lab spaces and offices for teaching, studying and researching science, business and religion. The building provides a home for eight academic departments – biology, business, chemistry, computer science, math, physics, psychology and religion studies. The design is based on a chevron plan that emphasizes the intersection between the science, business and religion disciplines housed in the building. At the center of the intersection is a glass walled three-story commons, which serves as the social and academic heart of the building. A suspended chapel on the third floor completes the top of this space. Three full stories (one partial fourth story) of classrooms, offices and labs are efficiently organized to take advantage of natural light, respond to flexible lab planning needs and offer flexibility for active learning classrooms.
