Emory Oxford Science Building
This new science building is the largest structure on the Emory Oxford campus in Oxford, Georgia. It was designed to reflect the institution’s history while also meeting the space and technology needs of contemporary education. The building is one of the most classically beautiful designs of any higher educational Facility in the Southeast.
The Oxford Science Building is clad in red brick with elements of Georgia Lithonia Granite. Red brick is used on several of Oxford’s historic buildings, and the granite is a locally quarried stone that adorns many buildings around campus.
Walter P Moore’s design took advantage of the natural insulating properties of concrete – used both for the foundation and as the primary structural material beneath the stone and brick facade – to increase the building’s energy efficiency. The Science Building is expected to achieve LEED Gold certification.
