Seen from atop William James Hall (and in detailed views below), the 470,000-square-foot Northwest Science Building now under construction weaves between the herbarium and the Museum of Comparative Zoology and existing facilities on Oxford Street—and even more extensively underground. Next year, it will accommodate science professors from several disciplines, enabling the Faculty of Arts and Sciences to pursue its foremost objective for intellectual expansion (see “Growth Spurt,” page 62).
