The American Institute of Architects (AIA) St. Louis recognized Washington University in St. Louis’ Bryan Hall with a 2020 Merit Award in Architecture on Oct. 28. Bryan Hall had at one time housed office and lab space for the McKelvey School of Engineering. It was transformed into additional research space for the Department of Chemistry in Arts & Sciences. The project also received LEED Gold certification earlier this year.
Under the direction of architecture firm Trivers, renovations to Bryan Hall included replacement of the north façade with modern glass and terra cotta and reconstruction of the connector between Bryan Hall and McMillen Lab to allow for easier movement between buildings and enhance scientific collaboration.
