Undergraduate Science Building
The Undergraduate Science Building, a contextual design of brick and cast stone reflecting the Georgian architecture of the North Carolina A&T State University campus, houses Chemistry and Psychology and completes a science quad with two neighboring science buildings. The location fronts a public street across from the football stadium, creating a new campus entry portal from the east and reinforcing the University’s commitment to science and technology to the community.
Inside, the facility includes teaching labs, classrooms and research space for its occupants. The building is organized in two wings, one that contains the more technical needs of chemistry, while the other accommodates shared classrooms and offices for psychology.
Chemistry labs include those for general and organic chemistry, as well as analytical teaching and research labs. The general and analytical labs are flexible to allow for multiple modes of teaching. Teaching labs are organized with exhaust hoods and lab gasses around the perimeter of the room, allowing for movable tables in the center. The tables can be arranged over a grid of electrical boxes to accommodate 24 students in a large group or six working groups of four students each. The building also houses computer labs, an animal facility and core instrument labs.
