Black and white photo of a central corridor in the 100 Sussex Drive building.


100 Sussex Drive
"Temple of Science"

Most of the space in the building is devoted to the laboratories which are located on each side of central corridors on all four floors.

The base unit of a laboratory was orginally 12 feet (3.6 m) wide and about 23 feet (6.9 m) deep. Some were double "bays". Today, the exact number of rooms varies because walls were modified as needed but there must be about 600 laboratories.

The room doors are steel-framed with glass panels. The frames are still painted black.
