The University of Pennsylvania is currently in the process of constructing a brand new nanotechnology center, named the Krishna P. Singh Center for Nanotechnology. The building site is an important gateway location along the north side of Walnut Street. As the campus is approached on foot or in a vehicle from the east, this is the first major academic building that one will encounter, and must announce the presence of the campus within West Philadelphia in a dramatic and notable way.
The new research facility will encourage the collaboration, exchange, and integration of knowledge that characterizes the study of this emerging field, and will combine the resources of both the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
Total project cost: $88,000,000
Area: 80,000 GSF
Completion: August 2013
