While the first volume, “Architecture for Health”, published in 2021, addressed the topic of visionary hospital construction, volume 2, “Architecture for Science”, takes a look at building for science from a variety of different angles.
RESEARCH BUILDINGS – AN ARCHITECTURAL CHALLENGE
Research is the driving force behind all innovation. Yet, for a long time, the research building, the nucleus of social change, languished as a purely functional building, ignored by architectural discourse. However, today there is consensus that structures for research and knowledge transfer must do more than just provide workplaces and experimental areas. They are actually spaces of communication and inspiration, a reflection of our times.
In “Architecture for Science”, Christine Nickl-Weller and Hans Nickl share their wealth of experience in planning research and science buildings. They initiate a discourse on their social significance, work-environment demands, and future challenges. Buildings dedicated to science are regarded within the context of urban structures, as highly specialised building types, in their dimension as working and living environments as well as with regard to innovation in research and construction. As an interdisciplinary approach is of crucial importance in this discussion, this volume includes articles not only by architects, urban developers and specialist planners, but also by experts from a wide range of research areas.
