The Institute of Technology has released its first preliminary sketch of a proposed new Physics and Nanotechnology Building. The University of Minnesota is requesting $53.3 million in state funds from the 2010 Legislature to help build an $80 million physics and nanotechnology building, revitalizing and expanding two key science areas. The sketch was produced by the Architectural Alliance and Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Architects. The five-story, 155,000-square-foot facility would include a 5,000-square-foot "clean room" dedicated to nanotechnology research, flexible research laboratories and student meeting space.
