Designing Spaces for Medical Research Innovation
by Dr. Kirsten Day 27 May 2015
The plan for the research centre provides a synthesis of the design requirements of a medical research facility with that of a working laboratory.
The brief for Aitkenhead Centres for Medical Discovery (ACMD) requires state of the art laboratory facilities to develop and promote the work of the collaborative partners.
Requirements include a project innovation studio that enables project teams to tailor laboratory space (including PC1, PC2 and 3D printing environments) and work collaboratively onsite and with remote partners via the interactive studio space.
Research draws together cutting edge investigative and ground-breaking practices by adapting diverse work methods to create a facility that promotes experimentation, innovation and collaboration.
