Fall Campus 2018

UT’s Ken and Blaire Mossman Building has been selected as an outstanding design in the 2019 American School & University Educational Interiors Showcase, which honors excellence in educational interiors. The building will be featured in the August issue of American School & University.

“The Mossman building highlights UT’s move to bright, branded, and unique interiors that celebrate learning and research,” said Dave Irvin, UT associate vice chancellor of facilities services.

The building was designed by McCarty Holsaple McCarty Architects and Interior Designers and Lord Aeck Sargent in collaboration with UT Design Services. The Mossman Building is a 221,000-square-foot, six-floor facility that features state-of-the-art teaching and research labs, flexible technology-driven classrooms, faculty and graduate assistant offices, and environments for independent and collaborative study. The building provides educational space for the Departments of Microbiology, Biochemistry and Cellular and Molecular Biology, Psychology, and Nutrition.

“Ken and Blaire Mossman met in a student work area,” said Facilities Services project manager David Crigger, “so part of the design was to have dedicated spaces with premier views and locations within the building just for students.”

The exterior design follows the university’s collegiate Gothic style. The building opened in September 2018.

“Mossman is an amazing addition to the campus, celebrating our Volunteer tradition in a functional, modern way,” said Andy Powers, director of design services.
