The Keystone Building and the Science Building were the first new buildings erected on the campus of the University of Washington, Tacoma, in 2001. The building was named for its unusual, triangular shape, reminding some of a keystone within a set of voussoirs. It was completed by the Seattle architectural firm of LMN, a favorite of the University of Washington during the period 1995-2010.

Building Notes

The UWT Keystone Building received an Award of Merit from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in its 11/2002 Honor Awards program. (See Elizabeth Rhodes, "Architects' projects honored," Seattle Times, 11/24/2002, p. E1.)
