The PA/NJ/DE Chapter of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) honored American University’s Hall of Science with an award in the ‘Best of Education/Institution over 30,000 SF’ category. Ballinger designed this vibrant, LEED Gold building to unify the University’s life sciences under one roof. The jury found “the focus on collaboration to be seamlessly integrated throughout the school’s design, with pockets supporting this around every corner. The use of natural light harmonizes with the finish palette, and is only further enhanced by the simplistic and clean lighting choices.”
