University of Kentucky Science - Lexington KY
University of Kentucky's Academic Science Building includes a state-of-the-art rainscreen in addition to its undergraduate teaching laboratories, with both formal and informal learning spaces that encourage discovery and support problem-based learning.
The building hosts programs in chemistry, biology, neuroscience, technology and boasts enhanced active learning environments, with 200- and 300-seat tiered lecture halls, classrooms and learning center spaces. Payette's exterior facade incorporated terracotta and Swisspearl® fiber cement panels. The Swisspearl® panels were used as a black band around the top of the building and at entrance areas. White Swisspearl panels were used for the entrance's soffit and continued into the interior of the building. The building is situated at the center of the campus and is a statement of the University's commitment to science and technology.
