Architect's conceptual sketch of the Biology/Geology Building.
Bio/Historical Note: Designed by the architectural firm Black, McMillan and Larson of Regina, the Geology Building was given a neo-Collegiate Gothic exterior to blend harmoniously with the other buildings in the central campus. The two-and-a-half-storey building was erected just south or the bowl side of the W.P. Thompson Biology Building providing 8,543 square metres for office, laboratory, library, classroom, and storage space for rock and fossil samples. The exterior was clad with greystone and dressed with tyndal limestone. The dominant feature of the interior was a two story atrium that featured the mosaics for the former exterior walls of the Thompson Building, a life-size skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex and geological and biological displays. The $18.5 million Geology Building was completed in 1986 and fused the space between Physics and Biology and linked through a walkway with Chemistry, creating an integrated science complex on campus.
