Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory - Molecular Foundry
Berkeley, California, USA
With cutting-edge amenities and unparalleled research capabilities, the Molecular Foundry encourages leadership in nanotechnology research. The $85 million, 95,000-square-foot building serves as a center for collaboration among researchers from diverse disciplines. The bold use of steel, concrete, aluminum and glass throughout the building adds to the Molecular Foundry’s overall impact and imposing appearance. The building also features creative curtain wall and window solutions from custom 11" deep mullion covers, which provide sunshading and maximize energy conservation, to custom anchoring that allow for movement between floors during earthquakes.
