Nebraska Wesleyan University | 21st Century Science Initiative
Celli-Flynn Brennan’s design solution for the new facility accomplishes a primary university goal: to move science education boldly forward. By proposing that the new building rest partially in an existing public right-of-way we challenged many preconceived ideas about the project and the necessary expansion of the campus outside its traditional boundaries while also announcing, advancing and promoting the university’s commitment to the importance of STEM education at their institution for the next century.
By closing a street we attached the new building to the campus and gained real estate for a new quad. As design architects for the project we met with all of the faculties and developed a building for the contemporary teaching and teamwork for STEM projects.
Our assignment was to design the building through the design development phase and then hand it off to a local architect for construction drawings and construction administration.
