Science & Mathematics Building
Meredith College’s New Science Building is a multidisciplinary facility for science teaching and research. The goal was to create a lab-rich environment for learning based on the principles outlined by Project Kaleidoscope. Included departments are: Biology, Mathematics, Computer Science and Chemistry – which is configured for certification by the American Chemical Society.
The facility, designed to serve the College’s science needs well into the 21st century, is not only state-of-the-art from a scientific point of view, but also sympathetic with the campus.
As the focal point of a new quad, the structure plays an important role in the growth of the campus. Key features of the building include an atrium with a Penrose-patterned floor designed by the Mathematics students, a courtyard with outdoor classrooms and an Astronomy observation deck on the roof. The project was designed by BJLAS, a strategic alliance company of Brown Jurkowski Architectural Collaborative and Lord, Aeck & Sargent Architecture
