The building massing expresses its programmatic organization; the faculty offices are accommodated in the towers facing the Campus woodland, whilst teaching and research laboratories are housed in a deep linear block to the rear. Circulation between these two spaces is via a central glazed atrium. This structure filters natural light into laboratory and conference spaces, becoming the main place of assembly.

The building is located on a ‘gateway’ site, at a promontory over one of the principle entrances to the University Campus. It is a new component of a wider planning effort aiming to consolidate a ‘science neighbourhood’ that would involve all of Princeton’s science buildings. We worked with Boston based firm Payette who were the Architect of Record on this project.
