The new Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex (ISEC) on Northeastern University's campus has integration at the heart of its design. The building and the surrounding landscape promote a sense of fluidity and connectivity, from the iconic sun shading finned facade to the spiraling steel staircase in the center of the six-story atrium. The motivation behind the ISEC's design is "enabling the fortuitous collisions, conversations, and collaborations that break down disciplinary divides" and there is still more to come, with an arching bridge spanning over the MBTA tracks connecting the ISEC to the main campus.

Not only does it look good, but the 220,000 sf complex saves 50% of the energy a baseline building uses, 40% water reduction and 75% of the construction waste was diverted to the land fills.

There's something unique around every curve!
The tour will highlight mechanical and design systems which contribute to the high-performance building attributes.
Networking happens during the tour and after the tour as most groups converge for a quick bite or drink after the conclusion of the 90-minute tour.
