The Sherman and Joyce Bowie Scott Hall
Scott Hall was designed by OFFICE 52 Architecture to be as visually stimulating as it is essential to interdisciplinary research initiatives at Carnegie Mellon University. The building fits like a jigsaw piece into Carnegie Mellon's
Scott Hall houses the Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation as well as the Department of Biomedical Engineering, the Engineering Research Accelerator, the Disruptive Health Technologies Institute and the nanotechnology research facility.

Construction for the Sherman and Joyce Bowie Scott Hall began after the Scott Institute was established in 2012 with a founding gift from CMU alumni Sherman Scott (E'66), president and founder of Delmar Systems, and his wife, university trustee Joyce Bowie Scott (A'65). Both the Sherman and Joyce Bowie Scott Hall and the Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation were funded by Sherman Scott and his wife Joyce Bowie Scott. The institute is named for Sherman’s father, Wilton E. Scott. Like Carnegie Mellon University, the Scotts epitomize the marriage of technology and the arts. The two met while studying at CMU, with Sherman earning his undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering and Joyce earning a Fine Arts degree.
Additional support for the building as well as education and research in energy was provided by a generous grant from the Richard King Mellon Foundation of Pittsburgh in 2013. In addition to the Scotts, CMU received support for Scott Hall from CMU alumni John Bertucci (E'63, TPR'65) and his wife, Claire Ruge Bertucci (MM'65); CMU alumnus Jonathan Rothberg (E'85) and his wife, Bonnie Gould Rothberg; and the Eden Hall Foundation.
