Washington University - Earth & Planetary Sciences Building
St. Louis, MO
Leonard Masonry, Inc.
Architect: Contacts Without Company
Home to Washington University's Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, the 59,000-square-foot Earth and Planetary Sciences Building serves as yet another example of Leonard Masonry's exceptional craftsmanship. Designed with the massing, detailing and materials of collegiate Gothic architecture, the three-story building houses labs, classrooms and a library.
The exterior uses the university's standard mix design of Missouri red granite and carved limestone. Masonry details include stair-stepping limestone quoins, multi-story limestone window surrounds, limestone edging and finials on every gable, horizontal and vertical mullions, and limestone arches and canopies.
The result is yet another masterpiece on Washington University's architecturally rich campus.
