This four-storey brick and limestone building on the Fort Garry Campus of the University of Manitoba was designed by architects Arthur Alexander Stoughton and Gilbert C. Parfitt, and built between 1931 and 1932 to house scientific teaching and research. Interior finishing details include a variety of fine marble, wooden, and metallic detailing. It was later renamed the Buller Building to commemorate pioneering botanist A. H. Reginald Buller.
On the front lawn of the Buller Building is the Innovation Plaza.
