North Central College New Science Facility

Open / Close

      In the fall of 2013, Holabird & Root was commissioned by North Central College to design a New Science Facility for its 150-year-old campus. The new building will replace its current 1970’s structure that no longer supports the pedagogy of state-of-the-art science instruction.  The new facility is being designed in accordance with the following principles:  The sciences will be expressed to those walking by or through the facility; the interior will foster an interdisciplinary community by creating common spaces that encourage informal interactions across disciplines; and classrooms and laboratories will be designed to support active, hands-on inquiry, where students can work individually or collectively. 

      The project is scheduled for completion in 2017.
