Science, Engineering Innovation, and Research Building

, The University of Texas at Arlington

Arlington, TX


The new University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) Science and Engineering Innovation and Research (SEIR) building is a collaborative, team-based learning and discovery space designed to provide significant student support in workforce needs and research activity. Designed by Page in collaboration with ZGF Architects, the sustainable five-story, 220,000-square-foot facility provides two floors of instructional space, with research activities occupying four floors and a basement level. State-of-the-art teaching is supported by 900 seats, and research space to advance health science discoveries and enable dramatic growth in engineering and science programs. The modern glass and concrete building has created a new, iconic southern entry to the UTA campus. Each floor incorporates a 150-seat and a 300-seat classroom, both intended for general campus use for larger core courses. A key design aspect is glass interior walls enabling work in the collaborative lab space to be visible to first-year students — a concept known as “science on display.”
