Project Description

The design of this 214,000-square-foot university education and basic research facility succeeds both functionally and symbolically. Its geometries are a remarkable synthesis of three major elements, including a two-story base containing student activity spaces, a research laboratory tower, and a library. The building’s exterior dramatizes its internal functions. For example, a grid of punched openings in solid masonry reflects the modular nature of the enclosed laboratories. Symbolically, Rennebohm Hall demonstrates the increasing importance of the pharmacy profession to interdisciplinary health care research, teaching and practice.

Jury Comments

The building program is very well translated into the material, palette, expression, scale, language and exterior of the building. This results in beautiful amalgams of massing forms, which seem entirely appropriate to this half-campus, half-scientific research building.
