TAC, School of Natural Resources, 1982  
Sited at the elevated southeast corner of Main Campus, the George D. Aiken Center for Natural Resources is a three-storied structure of glass and brick, housing faculty offices, instructional space, a sophisticated computer facility, and ten research laboratories.


 
Interior Atrium, SNR  
A dramatic sloped glass atrium, with block-like pylon shapes of red brick on either side, encloses a free-standing staircase at the north west entrance to the facility. This provides access to the three wings of the facility which radiate from the atrium. The clean compositional geometry of the building is echoed in the projected glass dormer windows, which punctuate the exterior surface of the building. The School of Natural Resources (SNR) overlooks the library quad from its elevated siting, and both defines and contains the southeast perimeter of main campus. SNR serves an undergraduate and graduate student body with an innovative core curriculum that offers majors in Environmental Sciences, Environmental Studies, Forestry, Natural Resources, Recreation Management, and Wildlife Fisheries and Biology.
