Project will include a massive 66,000 square foot renovation overhaul of the former Bayer Healthcare building and a new 35,000 square foot building addition. Programmatic spaces will include: hands on learning science and technology museum, classroom and learning studios, administrative office suite, science kit warehouse, and Lego-robotics studios. The programmatic spaces will be centered around a central hub/café/plaza and event room.
“The facility and site will serve as a 3D learning textbook for all!” commented Ancon Designer Matthew VanSoest. “Architecture and the built environment should benefit, promote, and foster learning. We are really thinking outside the box on this one! For example, building users will have visual connections into the mechanical/electrical/data rooms which are normally hidden from view. These and other building systems will provide rich learning opportunities.”
More information about the building project will be announced very soon!
