The Singh Nanotech Center

The Singh Nanotechnology building at 33rd and Walnut is one of the few buildings on campus that do not abide by its brick-building, earthy-toned, gothic-type architecture. But that is not the only interesting design choice in this glassy, modern research center. The nano-fabrication labs are situated underground, isolated and situated exactly to minimize (if not eliminate) any vibrations from nearby transportation centers, or other geographic perturbations. Also, the section of the third floor suspended above the front lawn resembles a cantilever– a nod to the cutting-edge microscopy technologies developed and used inside.
