The BEP project is a new academic building for the Biology, Engineering, and Psychology departments at Swarthmore College. In addition to providing expanded, modern space for biology, engineering, and psychology, the BEP building – planned as a model for environmentally intelligent construction practices — will support the campus community by strengthening interdisciplinary connections between academic departments across the curriculum through the addition of flexible classrooms, additional indoor and outdoor common space, and enhanced pedagogical experiences linked to environmental sustainability.
