Conceived as a unifying hub within the college of arts and sciences, Simon Hall is strategically placed at the intersection of the chemistry, biology, and biochemistry departments. The six-story facility literally and philosophically acts as an extension of each department’s research interests. The building provides researchers with centralized, state-of-the-art resources, such as laboratories and analytical instruments to support research initiatives for the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Aesthetically it complements the collegiate gothic and art moderne styles of surrounding historic buildings. To maintain the scale of this area, 65,000 gross square feet of the facility is located underground, preserving an existing grove of trees and the area’s green space.
