CREATE pushes the boundaries of conventional lab design—the buildings are very narrow, and cores and corridors are located at the perimeter to introduce maximum daylight and flexibility. The universal module supports the full range of lab types from computational science, wet biology, dry chemistry, as well as quality office space. As the first increment of the campus, CREATE embodies commitment to exploring and discovering new sustainable technologies. This unique place establishes CREATE’s brand and resonates as a scholarly center for academia, corporate entrepreneurship, student life and public curiosity.
