"Building for 21st Century Science examines how changing pedagogies in science education and research are reflected in the buildings that house them. The book presents case studies, with a Foreword by a distinguished research scientist and Nobel Laureate specialised in the field of Genetics. The Foreword speaks to the trend among the scientific community to engage in inter-disciplinary research in collaborative work settings. Examples are drawn from the work of Mitchell-Giurgola Architects and reflect the complex interactions among technology, diverse areas of investigation, collaboration and amenity. The book examines the critical role that architecture can play in synthesising them. Building for 21st Century Science features six projects by Mitchell- Giurgola Architects: NYU School of Medicine, Columbia, Cornell, Stony Brook and Rockefeller Universities and Norwalk Community College. Accompanied by a series of illustrated essays and a compendium of over 60 science buildings developed by the firm, the book reveals the logic and changes developing in this sector by a leading practice in the field."
