A continuous circulation spine navigates nearly three floors of elevation change, connecting all major programs to the public spaces of the facility. Interior transparencies put learning on display, prioritizing daylighting and connections to the building’s research laboratories. A series of ‘floating’ glass boxes provide meeting space that is engaged from multiple dimensions. The overall design maximizes the flexibility of spaces and provides concurrent opportunities for both learning- and industry-based research.
