Midway College needed to create new science laboratories and classrooms and provide new expanded offerings to serve the growing student population. KNBA created a new facility that also responded to the historical context of the campus. The new building provides a closure to the quadrangle and the undulating of the facade breaks down the scale of the large building so that it fits in with the existing buildings. It is a 46,000-square foot building with laboratories for biology, anatomy, microbiology/immunology, botany, physics, chemistry and physical/environmental science. Faculty members and upper-level students have access to dedicated laboratory space to pursue more advanced research projects. Additionally, the building has a 450-seat auditorium, classrooms, and faculty offices.
