Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex

Northeastern University ISEC

In April 2013, the first phase of ISEC was designed by Payette as a result of a design contest. Their design focused on an energy efficient building envelope, with a distinctive skin of fixed solar shielding reducing solar insolation. The building, now referred to in documents as ISEC, officially broke ground in February 2014.   

The grand opening took place on April 4, 2017.

In 2018 the complex was awarded the Harleston Parker Medal by the Boston Society of Architects, recognizing it as one of the most beautiful buildings in Boston.
