The Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building 7 will serve as a new gateway to the ASU Tempe campus. The approximately 258,000 gross-square-foot, high-performance research facility will foster an interdisciplinary approach to knowledge generation and leading-edge research, including innovative endeavors focusing on the sustainability of food, water and energy.

In addition to public outreach and exhibit spaces, ISTB7 will house Global Futures, the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability, the Rob and Melani Walton Sustainability Solutions Service, School of Sustainability, and the Institute of Human Origins. Designed by architect firms Architekton and Grimshaw, the facility is expected to be completed in 2021.
