Vancouver-based LSW to design Clark College complex

Clark College announced a new classroom complex to be located on the college's main campus in Vancouver's Central Park in the Winter 2010 issue of Clark College Collections magazine.

Called the STEM Center, named for the science, technology, engineering and math classes to take place under its roof, the four-story structure will be designed by Casey Wyckoff of Vancouver-based LSW Architects.

According to Clark College, the building will feature state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories and interactive displays.

 "The Clark College STEM Center will serve as the leader for STEM education and training in Southwest Washington, the Pacific Northwest and the nation," said vice president of instruction Dr. Rassoul Dastmozd.

Construction is scheduled to begin in 2011.
