UCSF Institute for Regenerative Medicine by Rafael Viñoly Architects

Image via Inhabitat

The University of California, San Francisco campus is set on Mount Sutro, west of downtown San Francisco. The location affords a sweeping view of the city, but the campus has had very little room to grow beyond its collection of fifties and sixties towers because of the steep hillside. New York based-architect Rafael Viñoly Architects recently finished the new Institute for Regenerative Medicine. The $123 million building, is a series of split-level floors with terraced grass roofs and solar orientation. Open labs flow into each other, with office and interaction areas located on the circulation route between the labs, allowing for the entire research community in the building to interact. The Institute has been dubbed the Dolby Building by students and faculty.
