Ed and Rae Schollmaier Science and Technology Center — Texas Wesleyan University

Located on Texas Wesleyan’s historic campus quadrangle, the Ed and Rae Schollmaier Science and Technology Center features computer labs, classrooms, a seminar room and faculty offices. A student lounge with exposed steel beams and wood decking provides a comfortable place to study, with views of the quadrangle through floor-to-ceiling glass.

Each learning area is contained in a uniformly sized block that stands out from the rest of the building, creating repetition and rhythm. The brick, wood and steel combination echoes the materials used elsewhere on campus, while creating fresh patterns for this new building. Subtle brick color differences and designs give added interest to the clean planes created by the repetition in space blocking.
