The Roger A. and Helen B. Krone Engineered Biosystems Building (EBB Krone) opened in 2015. It was built with the intention of creating a space where Georgia Tech engineers and scientists can work together on new medical technologies and curing diseases. Much like bees - or Yellow Jackets - the mascot of Georgia Tech, work together in a hive. It is possible that design architect, Lake Flato, and local architect Cooper Carry considered this when creating the building design.
