This fall, Nobles breaks ground on two building projects on campus—a major renovation of the Baker Science Building and the construction of an Academic Inquiry Center to include a new Putnam Library. The project will be completed in 2018. Head of School Bob Henderson explains that the project will reflect the changing function of libraries and science centers. It will also create a more unified, functional and beautiful campus. “The Academic Inquiry Center has to be iconic, and I don’t mean boldly, obnoxiously iconic,” Henderson says. “But it has to speak to the culture of the school. It has to speak to the relationship with the natural setting. It also has to speak to the relationship between the Baker Building and Shattuck Schoolhouse and the Castle, all of which are architecturally distinct.”
