American Science Buildings

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of American Science Building Designs. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed scientific buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the United States of America. The focus is on contemporary US Science buildings but information on traditional buildings in the USA is also welcome.
