It was argued that Bronfman was the best building on campus. Reasons given included:

  1. The math department is in Bronfman.
  2. The math library is in Bronfman.
  3. The Art History 101 classes tour Bronfman as an example of great architecture during the architecture section of the class.

However, in 2018, Bronfman was demolished to make space for the new North Science Center.

Notable features

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.
