The Harker School’s new science and technology building reflects the school’s commitment to next-generation technologies and teaching methods. Built in the heart of the existing campus, DES integrated 22 labs and classrooms, a 200-seat lecture hall, and a large forum space. All aspects of the building are designed for learning and are sustainable, encouraging scientific thinking and curiosity. A suspended Foucault pendulum demonstrates the earth’s rotation in the glazed curtain wall rotunda. Audiovisual systems allow worldwide sharing of science experiments from the lecture room. Sustainable features include a green roof, photovoltaic panels, infrastructure for a fuel cell, and eco-friendly materials and finishes.
