Named for Dr. David Goddard, a bioscientist who led Penn’s post-World War I renaissance in the bio scientists, and served as a Provost during the Harnwell presidency.
The western half of the Medical Research Laboratories, the Goddard Laboratory was erected immediately after the completion o f the Richards portion. It follows the essential themes of the Richards building -- linked towers whose frame is expressed on the exterior in-filled with brick panels and glazing. The westernmost tower, which is almost entirely brick-clad, further marks a shift toward a more expressionist vocabulary that provided better light control than Richards.
