MARIA GOEPPERT-MAYER

LECTURE HALL​

Client: Department of Physics (Young-Kee Kim, Chair)

Design: Christopher G. Leather

2017

In 2017 the Department of Physics asked us to design a plaque to dedicate the lecture hall in Kersten Physics Teaching Center to Maria Goeppert-Mayer, the first woman to win the Nobel Prize for Physics. The request opened a door that led to a full environmental experience transforming the lobby of the lecture hall into a mini museum dedicated to bringing long-overdue attention to one of the department’s most accomplished scientists.
