Présentation du contenu:
This project series documents the design for McGill University and Génome Québec Innovation Centre in Montréal from 2000-2002. The office identified the project number as 2000-25.
"This project was conceived to act as a networking site for research initiatives in the fields of genomics and proteomics. It accommodated five distinct research groups within a 92,000 square-foot facility: the Montreal Genome Centre, the Montreal Proteomics Centre, the Génome Québec Expertise Centre, the Montreal Bone Research Centre, and 5 bio-business incubators. The plan balanced specialized laboratory and office space with three key interactive spaces – the public passage through the building which linked the city to the campus, the atrium which provided an interactive social space for the facility, and the teleconference room. The laboratories, where raw data was gathered, were located on the east, while the bioinformatics offices for data analysis were located on the west. The intent was to create a building that acted as an instrument for knowledge, and to position the public spaces strategically and symbolically as reminders that the work of science was directly connected to humanity."
The project is recorded through drawings dating from around 2002. These are mostly original drawings and include sketches, plans, sections, elevations, perspectives, and details.
