The Morrison Family Education & Outreach Pavilion, completed in October 2014, sits at the heart of the 29-acre globally-unique ND-LEEF research facility and was the first permanent structure built. As the inaugural building and centerpiece of ND-LEEF, the Pavilion was designed to serve as a gateway for the public, University visitors, and students to the ground-breaking research being conducted at the facility, and to act as a critical bridge between the classroom and the field for students of all ages in the surrounding community. The Pavilion, the Phase I research watersheds, and attendant site improvements and necessary infrastructure are all part of a comprehensive guiding master-plan.


The Pavilion is an outdoor classroom and outreach destination and was conceived with the important goal of providing scientists and educators with a platform to directly connect their cutting-edge research and scholarship to the broader community. Meanwhile, the structure serves as a full-scale example of how sustainable design and construction practices can minimize society’s impact on the environment. By sourcing minimally processed, local building materials and utilizing durable timber framing construction techniques, The Pavilion is a structure that embodies the mantra of the Environmental Change Initiative, “Science Serving Society”, in both function and form. The roughly 650 square foot open-frame timber structure was constructed out of native white and Bur oak, hand-selected for the project from a stand of native hardwoods in western Illinois. After the timbers were felled, they were moved 20 miles to the timber frame shop for milling and fabrication. The Pavilion’s broad, protective eaves were achieved by placing tapered secondary rafters atop closely spaced purlins, providing necessary shade for researchers, students, and visitors during peak research season. The primary rafters engage both lintel and post with fully concealed, traditional mortise and tenon joinery. Time-honored technology is merged with new in this structure, with the incorporation of a cutting-edge touch screen digital display powered by rooftop thin cell photovoltaics. These technologies will enable ND LEEF researchers to share their work – and the mission of the facility – more broadly, while minimizing on-site energy consumption. Flanking display niches set into the 10” thick, cross-laminated white oak timber wall feature fixed exhibits that describe on-going research, including an in-depth narrative about the design and construction of the Pavilion.


We are honored that our work on this project led to several awards in 2015. We received an Acanthus Award for Excellence in Architecture from the Chicago-Midwest chapter of the ICAA, an Excellence Award for Community Engagement from INTBAU, and a Citation Award for New Construction from the AIA of Indiana.
