The new Mathematics and Science Hall at CCBC celebrates the sciences and provides a striking transition between the adjacent campus loop road and parking and the campus interior and academic quad. Serving as a central gathering and circulation space, a two-story glass atrium connects both spaces and people, unifying the renovated former library and new addition. Massing for the new complex is broken down into three components: atrium, planetarium, and laboratories. Field stone, masonry, and glazed aluminum curtain wall—materials found throughout campus—are expressed in horizontal lines and clad the laboratory volume, further breaking down its mass, while playing against the vertical drum form of the planetarium to create a dynamic asymmetrical composition.

“Top notch firm. The staff are very responsive to client needs. Innovative designs that are ‘buildable.’ I would highly recommend GWWO...” – Sam Beeghley, Project Manager, Community College of Baltimore County
