Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex (ISEC) at Northeastern University Update 02/09/16
Finishing touches being installed at Northeastern ISEC
Finishing touches are being installed at Northeastern University's new Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex (ISEC). Glass has been fully installed along the ISEC, and the building's distinctive sunshades are beginning to stretch across the unique curved facade. The sunshades will create a flowing pattern that will have a significant presence along the Boston skyline and the Lower Roxbury streetscape.
The flow of the ISEC's architecture speaks to the collaborative, innovative role the building will play on Northeastern's campus and in science and engineering research and education. To quote architect Payette, "movement defines the architecture, revealing a new culture of science at Northeastern that once existed in silos." The ISEC will host researchers in a number of science and engineering fields, uniting both disciplines and encouraging collaboration.
The ISEC is scheduled to open in fall 2016. The project is creating 600 construction jobs and is targeting Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum status, the most prestigious LEED certification available.
