The Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building IV is ASU’s single largest research building and home to research facilities for both the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. The 293,000-square-foot facility is south of the Biodesign Institute on the southeast corner of the Tempe campus, and house more than 160 labs-including 81 labs capable of biological and chemical experiments and 73 labs for computer analysis and applied mathematics-plus 60 faculty offices and a 250-seat auditorium.
The first and second floors of ISTB IV are largely devoted to the integration of cutting-edge research in earth and space sciences with public education. A focal point of the building is the 250-seat theater venue for high-definition documentary movies with earth and space science themes. The second floor hosts a variety of learning spaces for K-12 students and educators.
The third and fourth floors are devoted to Fulton Engineering research on security and defense, synthetic biology, electrochemistry and sustainable water initiatives.
