Continuing our commitment to designing world class academic research buildings, we are partnering with CannonDesign on the new Neuroscience Research Building at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. To improve collaboration among researchers and attract top talent, the design of the building breaks down traditional silos. The 600,000 SF facility aims to significantly increase research funding and position the University as a top institution nationwide.
Between its proximity to the adjacent Cortex Innovation Community and the design’s emphasis on encouraging relationships and collaboration, this project will provide a tremendous opportunity to expand neuroscience research across departments. Meeting rooms and huddle spaces are dispersed throughout the building, while a centralized zone with an open stair connecting all research floors creates a central collaboration zone.
