Boston Globe Review of Northeastern University's Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex
08.21.17 On Friday, The Boston Globe carried an architectural review of Northeastern University's new
Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex (ISEC) design by Payette. Touting both the building's inherent design features as well as its position within the larger Roxbury community, the ISEC was repeatedly described as an "icon" in the most literal sense of the word - that it is a representation of larger concept. The ISEC embraces its neighborhood while embodying goals of transparency, sustainability and interdisciplinary collaboration and is thus set to be remembered among the first to achieve these goals in Boston.
