Client Notes
Create a facility to support The University of Oregon's interdisciplinary and integrative research missions by uniting diverse scientific disciplines under one roof. With innovative and flexible lab design, support the research of biologists, material scientists, psychologists, neuroscientists, computer scientists, and chemists. Make a forward-thinking building that both fosters the changing needs of scientific research, and minimizes environmental impact.

Designer Notes
The Lewis Integrative Science Building supports and enhances the work of researchers through its uniquely configured spaces offering advanced laboratories and large-scale scientific equipment. The interior architecture is rooted in the idea of connectivity—linking the sciences, the outdoors, and the interior spaces. The entire building, from the basement to the fourth floor, supports the premise of science as an open, collaborative process rather than an isolated exercise conducted behind closed doors. The voluminous atrium forms the building’s heart—an expansive space for collaboration and activity that serves concurrently as the building’s 'living room' and a primary thoroughfare for the Science Complex.
