A Model of Interdisciplinary Education and Research


The Collaborative Life Sciences Building (CLSB) designed by CO Architects (design architects and interiors designers) and SERA Architects (executive architect) embodies an interdisciplinary, multi-institutional campus in a first-of-its kind partnership for Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), Oregon State University (OSU), and Portland State University (PSU). The building does so in the form of a 12-story complex with 500,000 square feet of space for classrooms, lecture halls, and laboratories for research and teaching, including medical simulation laboratories for high-tech, team-based learning. The building is conceived as an innovative model of interdisciplinary health sciences education and research, engaging students, faculty, and pedestrians through a concept of “health science on display.”
