Project Description

Dedicated in 1929 by President Calvin Coolidge as "the Temple of Science in America," this monumental headquarters building located on the National Mall is home to the National Academy of Sciences. The comprehensive renovation project applies the principles of sustainable preservation to seamlessly integrate a 21st century program, contemporary systems, and engineering infrastructure within the historic fabric of the existing structure.
