Centrally located across the great lawn from Olin Library, Harry and Susan Seigle Hall is a dynamic, interdisciplinary learning center for the College of Arts & Sciences and the School of Law.
Noted for its well lit, airy hallways and glass-encased stairwells, the building is named for alumnus and philanthropist Harry Seigle and his wife, Susan.
Designed by Kallman, McKinnell and Wood Architects, the building was constructed ahead of schedule by the St. Louis-based firm Tarlton Corp. and dedicated on September 25, 2008, in a ceremony presided over by Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton and Professor North.
A LEED-certified building, Seigle Hall incorporates a variety of environmentally friendly measures intended to minimize water usage and conserve energy.
Seigle Hall is the first academic building on the Danforth Campus to be named for an alumnus living outside of St. Louis. Harry Seigle, who earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Washington University in St. Louis in 1968, and Susan Seigle reside in Chicago.
