The Henson School of Science Salisbury University Salisbury, Maryland

In joint venture with Mitchell/Giurgola Architects.

This new 145,000 GSF undergraduate science facility includes state-of-the-art laboratories for the disciplines of biology, chemistry, physics, geography, regional planning, math and computer science. Urban design challenges include breaking down the scale of the building to fit in comfortably with smaller, adjacent buildings on this Eastern Shore campus, and responding to new and existing pedestrian circulation patterns. Significant new exterior spaces are created by the building: one that will be a large open "Science Garden" to the south, and one that will be a contemplative landscaped bosque to the north of the slender wing, adjacent to the mall. The interior of the building will be open and inviting with windows bringing in natural light into all laboratories and classrooms.
