University of Edinburgh - Geosciences Building

John McAslan + Partners has won an international competition to design the new Geosciences Building for the University of Edinburgh. The 20,000 sqm project on the King’s Buildings Campus will encourage communication between researchers and at the same time inspire students by allowing them to see the entire workings of a department. A reinterpretation of the typical laboratory layout will achieve transparency throughout the building, visually connecting write-up areas, laboratories, group rooms and offices. The building will be unified by a dramatic central atrium.
