Yale University has selected TenBerke and Ballinger to design its new Physical Science and Engineering Building on Science Hill. The firms will serve as design architect and architect/engineer of record, respectively.
The Yale Physical Science and Engineering Building will be the intellectual hub for the Quantum Science, Engineering, and Materials Initiatives, and enable the expansion of the Advanced Instrumentation Development Center. The building will house research facilities at the forefront of applied science, physics, and engineering disciplines. Located in Yale’s Science Hill district, the project will connect to its urban and landscape context; stitch together the fabric of the area; and provide clear visibility, and welcoming access.
While the building’s labs will have exacting scientific requirements for which future adaptability is critical, emphasis will also be placed on collaborative common areas and circulation spaces that provide opportunities for exchange and cross-disciplinary understanding, as well as visual and physical connections to the landscape and campus. The building will also embrace the unique topography of Science Hill, and the project will advance the master plan for the landscape and later development of the larger site. It will demonstrate Yale’s commitment to scientific excellence and its desire to make the sciences more visible to the university community.
