HarrisonKornberg Architects, in collaboration with Lord Aeck Sargent, is designing a new Multipurpose Building (Building 3) for Texas A&M University Central Texas (TAMUCT). A primary goal of the project is to increase the institution's instructional and research capabilities. The building will house the academic disciplines of Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Kinesiology, requiring specialized and purpose-built laboratory spaces. The program includes instructional science labs and faculty research labs as well as their support spaces.The space between the buildings is envisioned as an active courtyard. A feature design element in the form of a grand porch at the entryway to Building 3 will provide transitional space between indoor and outdoor spaces, act as an extension of the building lobby with shaded seating and help to activate the exterior courtyard.
