APSU’s New HSC Building Wins Prestigious Design Award

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Most Austin Peay State University students aren’t relying on the sundial atop the new Hemlock Semiconductor Building to get them to class on time, but Tom Bauer, with Bauer Askew Architecture PLLC, said his firm didn’t want to take any chances. They spent months researching and designing the sundial tower, which serves as a symbol of the solar technology being taught inside the facility, to make sure the archaic time-telling tool was as accurate as possible.

“That was a lot of fun, but it was challenging too,” he said.
