A Peek at Wesleyan's New Science Center

For those interested in pursuing science studies at Wes, there is a new science building near on the horizon. This is I believe the second design, the first being set aside because of the recession. Interestingly for those connected to Wes, the first design involved razing historic and beautiful Shanklin Hall. After an effective resistance to that idea, the new plan contemplates remodeling Shanklin (where the College of the Environment will be housed), and creating a great public space between it and the center.

Here is a short piece on it from Wesleyan magazine, and a series of renderings.
