”Temple of Science"
The Sussex Drive Laboratories were nicknamed the "Temple of Science" when they opened in 1932. The choice of a neoclassical design harks back to the 18th century, when the foundations of modern science were laid. Construction materials were gathered from across Canada. The interior combines the beauty of art with the functionality of a working laboratory.

Français:
Le « Temple de la Science »
Les laboratoires de la promenade Sussex ont été surnommés le « temple de la science » lorsqu’ils ont ouvert leurs portes en 1932. Le choix d'un style néoclassique évoque le 18e siècle, époque où l'on a jeté les bases de la science moderne. Les matériaux de construction proviennent d'un peu partout au Canada, et la beauté artistique de l'intérieur se conjugue à fonctionnalité propre aux laboratoires.
