Hood College - Hodson Science & Technology Center

New Amenities Meet Georgian Revival Style

Founded in 1893, Hood College is a private, liberal arts college in Frederick, Maryland sited on a Georgian Revival campus. The program required the integration of teaching, classroom and research space for chemistry, biology, math, physics and computer science within the context of the surrounding Georgian revival architecture.

The new shared space gives students and faculty the opportunity to collaborate on interdisciplinary projects. A modular arrangement of laboratory space was used to create learning clusters that provide hands on teaching environments integrated with faculty research space. This allowed for the building scale to be controlled and carefully fit into the context of the campus.

Classrooms are equipped with the latest in multimedia teaching tools and were designed to support group work as well as more traditional lectures while engaging students in a rich variety of learning activities.

The influence of the Hodson Science and Technology Center extends beyond the building, creating a science quadrangle composed of the new construction and the original architecture.
