Singh Nanotechnology Center

The grand opening of Penn's new Singh Center for Nanotechnology is tomorrow (Friday, October 4th). Computing directors in my department got to see it a week early when we held a special meeting in the Forum room.

This post contains a few photos from my visit - of the building exterior, hallways, and conference rooms. The labs weren't open yet. The full set can be found at Google Plus.

The Nanotech center has been featured in some recent articles:

* Philadelphia Inquirer - "Changing Skyline - Inga Saffron"
* The Daily Pennsylvanian
* Philadelphia Inquirer - "Penn going all out for small science"

Building exterior, from Walnut Street close to the 33rd Street intersection, looking east:

This cantilevered section houses a conference room - the Glandt Forum room.
