Ken and Blair Mossman Science Building
University of Tennessee

The Ken and Blaire Mossman Building houses a portion of microbiology, biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, psychology, and nutrition. Within its six stories the building fosters interactive teaching and hands on learning while creating expanded opportunities for research. There is space for both structured and unstructured interactions among students, faculty and staff.

KSi Structural Engineers, now part of Wallace Design Collective, provided structural engineering services for the 275,000 square foot building. Included is a 228-seat auditorium, classrooms ranging from 81 to 126 seats, indoor and outdoor gathering spaces and common areas for students and faculty, as well as a first-floor café. Lab spaces and classrooms are designed to enhance communication between students and professors, while the common areas allow for spontaneous interaction and learning opportunities beyond the classroom.

Seating in one of the building’s classrooms will take advantage of circular student stations, enabling groups of students to comfortably sit together in class. The teaching labs within the building feature an open air concept that will increase efficiency and flexibility.
