2006 Facilities Workshop: Meredith College

Marye Anne Fox Undergraduate Teaching Laboratory

Marye Anne Fox Undergraduate Teaching Laboratory
North Carolina State University
Raleigh, North Carolina

As the result of an extensive campus planning study that addressed numerous issues affecting the future development of North Carolina State University’s main campus including the analysis of three different sites for the location of a new undergraduate teaching facility, the Marye Anne Fox Undergraduate Teaching Laboratory served as a catalyst to develop a new quadrangle linking several science facilities. The university currently uses the new facility as a model for the development and integration of much needed exterior and interior community space.

The new 95,000 gsf building comprises four levels of laboratory instructional and support spaces for chemistry, physics and life sciences. Interaction between students, faculty and staff is enhanced by a three level clearstoried atrium that serves as the central community space.

In order to develop the landscaped exterior quadrangle, outdated research and teaching greenhouse facilities were replaced on different sites and the existing facilities were then demolished. The new facility includes a large portion of the teaching greenhouses which are located south of the building.
