Slated for completion in 2018, the Ken and Blaire Mossman Building will house portion of microbiology, biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, psychology, and nutrition.
Included in this space is a 228-seat auditorium, classrooms ranging from 81 to 126 seats, indoor and outdoor gathering spaces and common areas for students and faculty, as well as a first floor café.
Lab spaces and classrooms are designed to enhance communication between students and professors, while the common areas allow for spontaneous interaction and learning opportunities beyond the classroom.
Seating in one of the building’s classrooms will take advantage of circular student stations, enabling groups of students to comfortably sit together in class. The teaching labs within the building feature an open air concept that will increase efficiency and flexibility.
The building will incorporate elements from UT’s campus while enhancing the area where it is located.
