The William H. Foege Building is a gateway building located on a prominent site adjoining the historic campus core to the north and the modern medical campus to the east. It houses the major biomedical research and teaching activities of two health-related disciplines and creates a highly collaborative research environment. Bioengineering labs are customized within a set of generic, yet flexible, planning modules, while genome labs are planned as “lofts” providing greater flexibility. Entries, lounges, reading spaces and an atrium are located along an “internal street” that connects three public levels. Communal social spaces are located on every upper floor, and conference rooms and shared spaces offer waterfront and mountain views.
