Mount Mary University – Gerhardinger Science Center
This three story wing connected to the landmark 1929 Notre Dame Hall creates a new de-facto front door for the University while replacing the building’s dated science education facilities and classrooms. A cyber café, lounges, meeting rooms, student organization offices and technologically advanced and flexible lecture/classroom on the first floor serve the sciences and the University as a whole. Upper floors house the university’s undergraduate science laboratories (instructional and research), easily accessible faculty offices and break out spaces, along with a related lab for occupational and physical therapy. The project followed a Zimmerman-authored master plan and a project Kaleidoscope analysis that was generated by Robert Nalls.
