A beautiful, well conceived building. The laboratory planners were Health, Education Research & Associates. The Science Facility will serve seven different disciplines, housing research and teaching labs, research and teaching greenhouses, a vivarium, and a NMR suite.
 

CUNY's new building breaths new life into education 

“Living classrooms” are revolutionizing not only the design of learning environments – but the way students actually learn. One example of how designers and educators are working together to optimize the education system is Lehman College’s new Science Building.

Lehman College, part of the City University of New York (CUNY), has long been known for its rich architectural heritage – David Todd, architect of Manhattan Plaza, and Jan Pokorny, regarded for his expertise in adapting historic buildings for reuse, both helped to shape the College. Today, Lehman is looking to build on its history of innovation in campus design with the groundbreaking of its new Science Building.

Going beyond just housing academic programs, the new building itself will facilitate teaching and research. The building is centered on an “urban wetland,” from which scientists will conduct ecological and other life science research, and will also feature displays that provide real-time information on building operations, including energy and water usage.

Designed by Perkins+Will, the new Science Building is the first groundbreaking in CUNY’s “Decade of the Sciences” initiative, an effort designed to renew the CUNY’s commitment to science, math, technology, and engineering.
