HOK?s London office acted as architect and ?lead designer responsible for the institute?s overall design concept, lab planning, interior design and landscape architecture. PLP Architecture collaborated with HOK, leading the project through planning and helping to shape the building?s distinctive form and striking architectural expression.

Named after the scientist who helped discover the structure of DNA, the Francis Crick Institute represents a paradigm shift for biomedical research in the UK and the global research community. The 980,000-sq.-ft. building is home to a landmark partnership between the UK?s three largest funders of biomedical research?the Medical Research Council, Cancer Research UK and the Wellcome Trust?and three of its leading universities: University College London, Imperial College London and King?s College London. ?More than just sharing a building, these organisations have partnered as a diverse community of researchers working together in interdisciplinary teams,? said Bill Odell, FAIA, LEED AP, HOK?s firm-wide director of Science + Technology based in St. Louis.

The design encourages collaboration and interaction among multidisciplinary Crick researchers including biologists, chemists, physicists, engineers, computer scientists and mathematicians. The facility is divided into four lab neighbourhoods connected by two atria that bring daylight into all of the labs and other spaces. The atria cross at the centre of the building to create a hub with break-out areas, informal collaboration space, a large central stair and a concierge serving the entire floor.

?One of the Crick?s strategic priorities??to pursue discovery without boundaries??emphasises the importance of its workplace environment,? said Odell. ?Its researchers are encouraged to explore their scientific curiosities, with almost no idea being off limits.?
