Baylor Sciences Building

-A A +A
2004, HarleyEllis

Three wings radiate from the curved front of this four-story, red brick behemoth of over one-half million square feet. The stepped white towers, Ionic columns, and red brick with white brick stringcourses mimic Pat Neff Hall ( WT17.1), while Gothic-styled towers with tall hipped roofs, in emulation of Old Main ( WT17.2), anchor the ends of the curve.
