As a part of the Integrated Science Initiative, Ayers Saint Gross transformed Bryan Hall into a premier chemistry research facility for synthetic, instrument-based, nuclear, and radio chemistry. The existing central corridor on each level was relocated to the north side of each floor to create flexible lab layouts. Glass overlaid with a terracotta fin “screen” replaces a stone wall on the north façade, allowing daylight into the adjacent spaces and providing wonderful views.
