Architect: O'Brien Atkins (Architect of Record); The Freelon Group (Design Lead) - The Biomanufacturing Research Institute & Technology Enterprise Facility (BRITE) consists of a 35,000 gross-square-foot research laboratory addition to the existing Mary M. Townes Science Building at North Carolina Central Universitys Science Complex. The east elevation facing the Science Complex courtyard is a semi-transparent curtain wall and is thought of as more contemplative in nature. In contrast, the west elevation, cloistered by a masonry shell, protects the interior classrooms and teaching lab environment form the west sun. Its vertical window pattern was derived from the geometry of an unfolded DNA strand, reflective of the buildings purpose, which teaches processes in Biomanufacturing.
