Perkins+Will Selected for Northwestern University's Biomedical Research Building

13 December, 2013

-By Holly O'Dell


Northwestern University has selected Perkins+Will to design its 600,000-sq.-ft. Biomedical Research Building for the Feinberg School of Medicine in downtown Chicago. The firm, led by global design director Ralph Johnson on the project, bested two other shortlisted teams: Goettsch Partners and Ballinger, and Adrian Smith+Gordon Gill Architecture and Payette.



Collaboration among researchers and other building occupants drives the design, with spaces such as flexible conferencing suites, break/lounge areas, and laboratory “neighborhoods.” The sculptural structure also will emphasize daylight, views, sustainable features, and its connection to existing buildings.



“Perkins+Will has designed a building that will be both very functional and will also have great internal spaces that will encourage collaboration among our researchers,” Eric Neilson, M.D., Northwestern’s vice president for medical affairs and the Lewis Landsberg dean of Feinberg, said in a statement. “It will support our research mission and will help us attract the best faculty in the country.”
