The Archibald Granville Bush Science Center (BSC) may have been built as a bomb shelter, but it has finally seen the light. Natural light, that is, and lots of it. The building went from having only 24 windows to having 134—plus an additional 203 glass panels inside the building. And all that glass is for more than just aesthetics. It’s to showcase the sciences. It’s to break down the walls between disciplines. And, as President Lewis Duncan says, it’s to “change the perception of science as something that’s done in the basement to something that enhances society.”
