Duke University has resurrected an outdated chemistry lab building slated for demolition, and transformed it into an interdisciplinary hub for research and teaching in engineering, sciences, and social sciences. A two-story central atrium (pictured above) forms a focal point around which most other spaces are organized: classroom and academic areas, research labs, break spaces, and conference rooms.
The Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) has completed Phase I of a renovation and expansion project aimed at increasing the size of its entering medical doctor class by 78 percent, from 56 students in 2009 to 100 by 2016. Phase I involved four relatively small projects—all renovations of existing space—that will have a major programmatic impact: the addition of a state-of-the-art animal surgery suite, a graduate teaching laboratory, a renovated library, and a renovated research laboratory that consolidates MSM’s four core biomedical research areas.
