Fentress’ design for the new Biomedical Laboratory creates a signature building and a preeminent research center to develop the next generation of cures, therapies, research tools and technologies in stem cell research.
Five world leaders in life sciences research – the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, the Scripps Research Institute, the Sanford | Burnham Medical Research Institute, the University of California, San Diego, and the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology – bring their intellectual resources to this alliance. Nicknamed the “Collaboratory,” the building design fosters informal collaboration and interaction in a synergistic, daylit environment. Adjacent to the Salk Institute and UCSD campus, the building features office “pods” cantilevered from an exterior walkway, offering protected views that overlook the Torrey Pines Golf Course, the historic Gliderport and the Pacific Ocean.
