Facts

  • The building creates a new working environment for advanced medical and biological research.
  • The forum is a complex three dimensional form; fully glazed at its northern end it looks out onto generous views of the Queens Lawn which, together with the Queens Tower, is the last remaining fragment of the original 1890s Imperial College campus.
  • The enclosed, southern end of the space is dominated by an art installation by the distinguished Danish artist, Per Arnoldi, which links all floors visually by gradations of color.
  • The laboratories within the building are modular.
  • The north elevation is clad in Portland stone and glass to lighten the overall appearance of the heart of the College, while a glazed service tower with lifts, toilets and stairs projects forward from the main building to contain and complete the corner of the Queen's Lawn.
