Katherine & Harrison Weeks Science Building

A 41,000 square-foot state-of-the-art science and technology center at Baylor School. The building will hose biology, chemistry, and physics applications, as well as a new interactive SMART Board, which integrates the power of the computer with the flexibility of a whiteboard in the classroom setting.

Situated at the center of Baylor's 670-acre campus, the Katherine & Harrison Weeks Science Building is home 14 laboratories, three state-of-the-art computer classrooms and laboratories, faculty offices, and common areas. Its design, conceived by Franklin Associates Architects of Chattanooga, includes classroom space that can be easily modified to accommodate emerging technologies and new teaching styles.

Featuring a stunning central tower and a covered walkway the length of the building's facade, the architecture reflects a traditional, modified Tudor design. Architect Randy Cagle successfully incorporated architectural details of many of the historic buildings on the 85-year-old campus, thus preserving the traditional atmosphere of the school while providing a state-of-the-art facility to house the school's nationally recognized science program.
