Mike Glaros, AIA, LEED AP and Baltimore office leader, recently contributed a piece to Laboratory Design discussing Towson University’s Science Facility and its evolution into a leading STEM higher education facility. Mike describes how the expansion moved from an addition to an existing science building to a new location that sits at the front edge of campus near its historic main entrance, placing the new facility on full display and sciences at the core of the university’s daily life.
The new 300,000 sf building will house all teaching, research and administrative functions for biology, PAGs (physics, astronomy and geosciences), chemistry, science education and environmental sciences. The design and layout juxtaposes public space with research and teaching components. Mike’s full piece can be found here for reference.
