Two new physics buildings providing 197,000 sf of teaching, study, and office space are opening at Texas A&M University. The $82.5-million George P. Mitchell '40 Physics Building and the George P. and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics and Astronomy offer new research laboratories, graduate and undergraduate lounges, offices, a 468-seat lecture hall, and a 180-seat auditorium named in honor of theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking. Designed by Michael Graves & Associates and Michael Graves Design Group, the double-duty project, which uses natural convection currents to maintain optimal room temperature, is seeking LEED Silver certification.
Dual physics buildings aim for LEED Silver
The project will renovate three buildings and build another from the ground up.
Stantec is designing the project.
