UT Biotech Greenhouse
Trial Gardens. In addition to the research activities common in other greenhouses, this facility features a large teaching component housed in two state-of-the-art classrooms. The large classroom has abundant natural light and views toward the trial gardens.
Among comments from a peer-review jury: This building presents a mundane material palette used to great effect. There is a simple sectional clarity and a connection to the exterior established throughout the corridors. In granting this award the jury specifically wishes to highlight the sunshading detail and lighting detail that sculpts daylight to create a system of passive way-finding.
