Biological Sciences II


This is a photograph of a model of the Biological Sciences II building, looking at the north-west corner of the building, with Parking Lot #1 on the left side of the image. The building houses numerous laboratories, offices, and other research spaces. Jones & Emmons had previously designed Theater & Dance East and Noble Hall in the "early campus standard" style, with patterned cinnamon colored concrete blocks, covered walkways, and patterned wind-walls. Biological Sciences II references more of the "late campus standard" style, with horizontal re-enforced concrete, prominent vertical utility shafts, and one story covered entryway to the multi-story building.
