Valley Life Sciences Building

The Valley Life Sciences Building (VLSB) was 1 of 4 building projects (Life Sciences Building, Life Sciences Addition, Koshland Hall, North West Animal Facility) undertaken to revitalize the biological sciences on the UC Berkeley Campus. The VLSB was the most ambitious. It was constructed in 1930—considered to be state-of-the-art—and was completely gutted and reconstructed on the interior.

The reorganization eliminated 11 traditional departments, (Botany, Biochemistry, Genetics, Zoology...) forming 3 new departments: Integrative Biology, Molecular & Cell Biology, and Plant Biology.

Worth Ryder Art Gallery

The Worth Ryder Art Gallery presents thought-provoking exhibitions of contemporary art, gives students experience installing and sharing their artwork, and serves as the social and artistic hub of the Department of Art Practice.
