“ . . . two thumbs up . . . liked the transparency between the labs . . . nice use of details . . . in terms of program space, this restoration is well done . . . would want to check this building out . . . ”
The new Physical Sciences and Engineering Center serves as a successful and innovative model based on educational research and best practices for the teaching and learning of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Comprised of three separate buildings, which surround a Science Courtyard, the project represents science and engineering at its best by melding state-of-the-art technology with light-filled, flexible learning spaces and incorporating sustainable design practices. The plan incorporates elements from the historic on the perimeter and introduces newer and lighter materials within the Science Courtyard interior. The resulting architecture blends seamlessly with the old campus but also represents the future of STEM education at the college.
