American University is constructing the $90 million Hall of Science in Washington, D.C. Designed to promote innovation and collaboration, the 125,000-sf building will provide shared research areas where students and faculty can participate in joint projects with scientists from the National Institutes of Health, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Housing the departments of biology, environmental sciences, chemistry, and neuroscience, the three-story, 125,000-sf structure will include multidisciplinary core facilities, a dedicated computational science lab, teaching labs, classrooms, faculty offices, and study spaces. LEED sustainable design certification will be sought for the project, which began construction in summer of 2018 and is slated for occupancy in fall of 2020.
