The ongoing growth and development of Stanford University has produced some marvelous new buildings, several of which I’ve been commissioned to document for the architectural firms involved. Recently, the old Chemistry Building, one of the very early building on campus has begun the process of rehabilitation and renewal under the direction of EYP Architects.
I was asked to document some of the spaces before the full interior demolition was finalized. The scale and volume of the rooms was fantastic and should prove a great base from which to create a new life for the building.
Some nostalgic student with a super nerdy sense of humor had run amok with s spray can, tantalizingly offering directions to Linus Pauling’s brain.
Linus, as we all know, was one of the most influential chemists in history and ranks among the most important scientists of the 20th century. He won a Nobel Prize for Chemistry AND the Nobel Peace Prize. That would be a brain worth finding.
