Building Types - Educational

The new Jerome L. Greene Science Center is intended to not only be a university-wide facility, but also be a welcoming presence that connects with its surrounding urban neighborhood. Considerable care was given as to how the building would interact with and activate the street level, with a sidewalk level that will become an open area for communal, cultural,and commercial exchange.
