A demonstrably sustainable approach to the landscape was necessary for this 122,000 sf state-of-the-art science laboratory building houses the biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy and meteorology departments. T|G’s strategy was to focus on a single landscape design element, an ornamentalᅠ grass garden which grounded the building in the site, visually connecting it to the broader campus and the conifer garden beyond.ᅠ Sustainable stormwater treatment measures were employed and paved areas were minimized. Design features also included pedestrian and vehicular access, entry plazas, building service areas, and site furnishings.
