Flad Article on High-Rise Research Labs Published in Building Design + Construction
Building Design + Construction recently published an article written by Flad principals, Joseph Marshall and David Bryant titled "Science in the sky: Designing high-rise research labs." The piece explores the current, industry-wide shift away from positioning laboratory facilities in industrial districts removed from the public realm, in favor of integrating science facilities into the modern metropolitan landscape in high-rise buildings.
Recognizing the inherent socioeconomic and environmental benefits of high-density design, in addition to talent accessibility and cultural engagement opportunities, research corporations have boldly embraced this new era. The article outlines how reimagining traditional laboratory design and settings allows us to create dynamic, human-centric buildings that further enable opportunities for discovery and lifechanging innovation.
