Fossilized Limestone Enhances University Campus
This article from Stone World explores the unique materials used in the Natural Science and Engineering Research Building at the University of Texas at Dallas, for which Page served as Architect of Record.
When designing the new Natural Science and Engineering Research Building at the University of Texas at Dallas, the architects wanted to reflect the colors of the existing architecture on campus and create a distinct natural-looking appearance for the structure. After some deliberation, it was determined that Texas limestone would be the most appropriate material, which was used throughout the interior and exterior of the building.
In addition to its durability and economic attractiveness, the project team agreed that using a locally sourced material was a compelling feature.
The University of Texas at Dallas has invested in expanding the campus infrastructure to become one of the nation’s top research institutes, and the Natural Science and Engineering Research Building is the centerpiece of its growth plan.
