Witherspoon is an building containing classrooms, laboratories, and offices.  The pictures show the use of passive solar.  The windows are southfacing and collect the energy of the sun throughout the day.  The interior wall collects this energy and, through a ventilation system, transfers it throughout the building.

Witherspoon is also the site of a native grass and wildflower restoration.
