University of Washington, Seattle, Campus.

An early building on the then-new University of Washington Campus, the Science Building occupied a site to the west of the first building on the site, Denny Hall. Architects, Josenhaus and Allen, designed the Science Building to harmonize aesthetically with Denny Hall, as it retains a similar plan, but has a less expensive brick exterior. It was later taken over by the English Department and renamed for the Pulitzer Prize-winning faculty member, Vernon L. Parrington.

A renovation in 1989 was supervised by Cardwell Thomas, a firm specializing in historic preservation projects. They also worked on the seismic renovation of Suzzallo Library.
