Medical Research Complex

The Roswell Park Medical Research Complex is part of a campus-wide modernization for the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.  The 164,000 sq ft building is sited to connect existing campus research buildings and create a central square for the Center.

In connecting the existing laboratories and education building, the new complex “absorbs” some of the features of the existing buildings to break down the scale of the building and to make a more coherent whole. The thin, elongated laboratory wing and light shelves above the windows allow for natural light to fill the building. Both the laboratories and the vivarium are modular to enable future flexibility. The vivarium is stacked vertically, giving the researchers direct access to the animals on each floor.
