Colorado State University Biology Building

Fort Collins, Colorado

The living wall, fish tanks, and astounding biology exhibits throughout the first floor give this educational research building the feeling of a museum.

Haselden recently completed the new $60 million Colorado State University Biology Building, a 4-story classroom and biology research building. The new building includes an auditorium style lecture hall, computer labs for students, general teaching and research labs, and offices for faculty and graduate students. Collaboration spaces located throughout the building increase chance encounters between faculty and students. The new facility features a 2-story fish tank, plants, and other biology exhibits on display, giving the building a modern natural history museum feel. The building is part of the new science quad on campus.
