Photos of the Gordon Center for Integrative Science

Ellen and Melvin Gordon have made a donation of $25 million toward the University of Chicago’s largest science building, constructed to exacting standards so that scientists could pursue innovative research that crosses the traditional boundaries between physics, chemistry and biology.

Second in size only to the University’s Joseph Regenstein Library, the Gordon Center encompasses 400,000 square feet at 929 E. 57th St. The building was designed according to strict specifications to control cleanliness, temperature, sound and other environmental factors needed to do cutting-edge experimental science in the 21st century.

Once fully occupied, the building will bring together 100 senior scientists, along with 700 additional researchers and students. Scientists began moving into the building last June. READ MORE
