Rockwell Integrated Sciences Center

Project Description

In the heart of Lafayette College, the Rockwell Integrated Sciences Center is the largest capital project ever built by the College and embodies its commitment to the sciences, technology, innovation and the integration of disciplines. The building is a “vertical commons” that features a dramatic four-story atrium with an interconnecting monumental stair and an open-air courtyard to create indoor and outdoor study spaces for students and faculty. One of the lowest-energy use academic buildings in the country, the new science center is LEED Platinum certified, and was delivered under budget with superlative quality.
