Architecture

Bronfman was designed by the same architects as the Greylock Quad, so it exhibited the same brick, glass and concrete design, with the same "floating stairs" effect and the thin windows in the stairwells. However, it did not have the "egg crate" ceilings that the Greylock Quad dorms and Greylock Dining Hall have.

Fun Facts

  • Bronfman was much bigger than the other science buildings in square footage, but it was designed to blend into the Science Quad and not dwarf the other buildings.
