Jordan Hall

NC State University
Raleigh, NC

Jordan Hall unites NC State’s Natural Resources disciplines—Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences—in a design that reflects those programs.

This 114,000-sf teaching and research facility includes laboratories, classrooms, and faculty offices as well as the Natural Resources Library.

Jordan Hall was designed to promote the development of innovative solutions to problems related to our natural resources, as well as facilitate communication among government, academic, and private sector interests.

Design elements reflect the programs housed within: large cloud-like granite shards allude to the meteorological sciences, and the wave form of the library’s exterior wall recalls the marine science.
