Looking ahead: An overview of the upcoming University expansion
Singh Center for Nanotechnology
Funded by a $20 million gift from Penn alumnus Krishna Singh, the Singh Center for Nanotechnology will provide over 80,000 square feet of lab and classroom space for research into nanoscience, the scientific study of extremely small materials.
Officials are currently studying the feasibility of the project, which will be located on 32nd and Walnut streets on what is now a parking lot. The Center is slated for completion by 2012.
University architect David Hollenberg said the center's proximity to other Engineering buildings will help "will help foster interdisciplinary collaboration" between the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering and Applied Science, which are both involved in the project.
