Engineering and Science Buildings

-A A +A
1977, McClure/Nixon/Farr (Science Building). 1981, TRA/Farr (Engineering Building)

Linked by a second-level spine to the Campus Center, Sports Center, and Bookstore, the Engineering and Science buildings are extremely similar—two stories, ribbon windows, little ornament, flat roof—but their colors set them apart. The Science Building is clad with beige enamel panels and a slightly purplish glass, while the Engineering Building has purple enamel panels, bronze windows, and a thin orange line at the cornice.
