INRA Research Laboratories in Nancy, France by Tectoniques Architects

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: Tectoniques Architects

The Champenoux site in the Lorraine region is one of the five sites of the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (National Agronomic Research Institute) in France. Located in the immense forest of Amance, it has added a new laboratories and offices building on the existing site. These high-level technical research centres host French and foreign researchers who work together to study the ecology and genomics of forests. Due to its history and its geographical position, the INRA centre in Nancy has always been largely devoted to the study of the forest and its products (of which timber is the most important). Five hundred people study subjects from the genome to the territory, including the functioning of trees and of ecosystems, as well as the forestry economy and the production of biomass.

Lordelo Pharmacy in Vila Real, Portugal by JOSÉ CARLOS CRUZ – ARQUITECTO

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

Article source: JOSÉ CARLOS CRUZ – ARQUITECTO

The Pharmacy is located in Vila Real, in the centre north of Portugal and is part of a peripheral zone of the city where the environment does not have a consolidated and uniform image. In the absence of external references, it was chosen to create a building with an abstract and neutral character, reinforced by the absence of openings. With oval shape footprint, the two floors are fully aluminum coated corrugated and perforated. The only direct opening to the outside is the main entrance that gives access to the sales area. By changing the interior light and the symbol of pharmacy, the building gains dynamic, allowing the image variation from day to night. The store not only sells medicines but also has its own laboratory for compounding pharmacy.

Carbon-Neutral Energy Solutions (CNES) Laboratory in Atlanta, Georgia by Gilbane Building Company

Saturday, January 19th, 2013

Article source: Gilbane Building Company

Georgia Tech’s new Carbon-Neutral Energy Solutions (CNES) Laboratory develops technologies to reduce the earth’s carbon footprint. From design and construction to daily operation, the laboratory seeks to achieve carbon-neutral “net-zero site energy use” (defined as zero net energy consumption and zero carbon emissions annually) expressed simply, directly and honestly through a “no frills” design. The lab sets a new standard for sustainable design for buildings of its type by optimizing passive energy technologies, reducing electricity loads, and maximizing the use of renewable energy. It houses a variety of energy research programs requiring large-scale (high-bay) and intermediate-scale (mid-bay) capabilities.
