In Spring 2012

Lit for early risers, Lee 3, a sparkling new addition to Lee Hall, radiates optimism on a rainy morning in January. Designed by Tom Phifer, a Clemson graduate, the building uses state-of-the-art technologies to save energy and fill its spaces with fresh air and natural light. For students and faculty members, the building sets a high bar: design for the future but learn from the past.
