    This Gigapan has a view of an east door into Keck, which is one of the better looking doors on campus when you catch the sunlight at the rigt time: www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id= 12141Also if you go to: www.pbase.com/texas_photo/image/87 015471 Will open in a new tab or window you will see that the est door into Keck Hall looks like a golden diamond. Rice University has a beuatiful campus.

    I was a student at Rice long ago and spent many hours in Keck Hall (although it didn't yet have that name), but I don't think I ever saw this view of it (I usually approached from the area by the lecture hall, which is visible at the far left). I think you've found the best possible view of the building. It really is more attractive than I ever gave it credit for. Thanks for sharing it.

    The information as follows has been taken from www.gprplanners.com/portfolio/rice .asp Will open in a new tab or window : The Rice University Keck Hall Chemistry Building Renovation encompasses the restoration of an 89,000 gsf historic building (built in 1927) within which will be located new state-of-the-art research laboratories, teaching laboratories, and classrooms dedicated to the Biochemistry & Cell Biology and Bioengineering Departments. The laboratory spaces were designed such that the boundaries between the teaching laboratories and the research laboratories are diminished to encourage collaboration and interaction. Functionally, the research laboratory spaces were designed for flexibility while allowing for customization for each individual investigator's requirements. The Biochemistry & Cell Biology research laboratories were designed as open labs with direct access to dedicated support spaces such as tissue culture, electrophoresis, laser, radioisotope/x-ray rooms, and offices.
