With Page as a parter, CSArch recently completed a 25,000 square foot addition of the Gordon Science Center, designed to advance science education and research programs, ensuring that the college can continue to fill a critical need for a well-trained workforce of health and science professionals in the surrounding regions.
The main lobby is a double height space that brings the exterior in. At the lower level, the exterior planter extends into the space to form a rock garden under the stair. Behind the stairs, a wood tile accent wall warms the space and connects to the outside environment.
Built in 1963 and essentially unchanged from that era, the Gordon Science Center has exceeded the limits of its ability to support the enormous growth in the College’s science programs and the rapid advances in research and technology that afect instruction in biology, chemistry and related programs. CSArch partnered with Page to program and design a new building addition to support research and teaching laboratories. The project includes full-scale redesign and renovation of science research laboratories; teaching laboratories; classrooms; support rooms; faculty office; and an auditorium and lecture hall.
The modernized building will provide a world-class teaching and research environment for students and faculty, greatly improving educational and employment opportunities for the next generation of scientists and researchers.
