Sophisticated Vision for Vanderbilt Project

A new, high-rise collaborative research building at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, combines biology, molecular biology and medical research — to encourage interaction between diverse disciplines. This project, the Biological Sciences/ Medical Research Building III, includes 260,000 sq. ft. of new construction; renovation of a previously existing 85,000-sq.-ft. laboratory; a 6,000 sq. ft. greenhouse; and a 9-story atrium. The architecture that helps facilitate this sophisticated, interdisciplinary vision draws on design that is innovative, yet responsive to the distinguished heritage of the institution.
