UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN – MADISON MICROBIAL SCIENCES BUILDING

The Microbial Sciences Building unites microbiologists from three departments into one community for interdisciplinary research, teaching and outreach. It provides an inviting, stimulating work environment with world-class research and instructional facilities and establishes a greater visibility for microbiology. Labs are organized into five distinct, secure neighborhoods, linked through two connecting atria containing cafes and meeting places. Glass-enclosed conference rooms and open stairs suspended in the atria promote visual interaction and enliven the interior. The generous atria lend transparency to the entire building, reinforcing the emphasis on collaboration. Teaching and public spaces are located on the first two floors, with the secure laboratories located on the upper three levels. CO Architects: Design Architect; Plunkett Raysich: Executive Architect
