Biodesign Institute Building C

Arizona State University

Arizona State University’s Biodesign C building is the latest addition to ASU’s Biodesign Institute Complex, increasing the facility’s overall research space by 188,000 square feet. Multiple branches of scientific research are pursued within the building, including teams developing the world’s first compact electron laser and conducting neuroscientific research into novel treatment methods for Alzheimer’s Disease.

Comfortable and strategically placed gathering spaces and common areas throughout the building encourage interaction and collaboration among the various disciplines.

Labratory lighting was carefully integrated within bench casework for high-quality, shadow-free task illumination. In crystallography labs, specific wavelengths were used to protect photosensitive experiments.

This project is pursuing LEED platinum, and is targeting a forty-four percent energy reduction compared to existing campus buildings.
