2013 – First Place

The Lovells Island Marine Biology Research Center

Ben Greer

Northeastern University

This project proposes a new marine biology and research center that couples Boston’s vibrant academic community with the diverse ecological environment of Lovells Island in Boston’s outer harbor. Rather than bringing the “outside in” to stimulate the educational experience, this proposal seeks to bring the “inside” directly to the source by providing researchers and students with the invaluable benefits of on-site learning.

With the capacity to house up to 30 people and containing two research labs, the 6,593 square foot facility is designed for groups of students and researchers to spend days at a time on scientific retreat.
