-The Silvio O. Conte National Center for Polymer Research was conceived as two distinct wings connected by a common elevator: one wing for offices and the other for laboratories.  Facing north, the six-story office wing is a steel structure faced with an enameled steel and glass curtain wall.  An arcade of exposed steel beams and stone-clad pillars serves no structural function, but creates an inviting entranceway to the building.  The curved design of the office wing draws the eye into a courtyard created by the convergence of the Center and the [[buildings:l:lederle|Graduate Research Towers]]. +The Silvio O.

The eight-story laboratory wing has limestone paneling and a granite base that blend with other buildings in the immediate vicinity.  The wing houses 113 research labs serviced by 150 fume hoods.
