This is another Albert Kahn building that I didn't get a picture of the last time I did my tour. It started life as the Natural History building.
The University was faced with a lack of space for its growing science cirriculum. So in 1913, the Regents asked the State Legislature for funds to construct a new building. This building was designed by Albert Kahn and completed in 1915.
It has a few nice details on it but it doesn't seem as nice as some of the other Kahn buildings.
The trim isn't as intricate.
I do like the light fixtures though.
The University motto.
Based on some of the other buildings, I wouldn't recognize this building as a Kahn building. It seems more utilitarian.
