Sharing the Bench: Designing Collaborative Spaces for Research by Theodore

Sharing the Bench: Designing Collaborative Spaces for Research by Theodore

Laboratories today vary from stark, private modules to fully open spaces with interactive white boards, lounge chairs and lattes. Experience suggests that the most successful laboratory facilities provide a variety of workspaces -- that is, areas that are personal, but not too private; open, but not too loud; and a few spaces that are a bit of each. Whitepaper by summit speaker Theodore Newell, AIA, Principal, Laboratory Programming, Planning Concept Design at EwingCole.
Five Thoughts on the Future of Scientific Labs

Five Thoughts on the Future of Scientific Labs

In recent years, the scientific community and affiliated professions have toyed with the idea of creating a “lab of the future.” Vendors, research organizations, and engineering and design firms have all begun to explore how contemporary scientists work within research environments and how the physical layout of labs can better support their endeavors. One issue that can’t be ignored is... Article written by summit speaker Erik Lustgarten, AIA, LEED, Director- Life Science Practice Area at Gensler.
