Description on ObjectRon Paul Finne; Duckweed Goldfish Brocade; copyright 1988; cibachrome print; 15 x 17 inches; for Science Complex, UO
NotesThis project included the construction of a complex of four major science buildings, the construction of a new Museum of Natural History and two smaller architecture studio buildings to replace dislocated facilities, and a remodel of a former science building for Architecture and Allied Arts, which lost about 15,000 net square feet of programmatic space to construction of the new science buildings. The project was completed from 1989-1991.
