project at a glance

The NYU Center for Genomics and Systems Biology is a 70,000 square foot laboratory building that houses chemical biologists and theoretical bioinformaticians.

The project encompassed three buildings with historic masonry-bearing walls, facades, original wood floors and wood floor joists dating back to the late 1800’s. The historic facades was structurally reinforced and maintained as the buildings were restored and incorporated into the final design.

Phase I consisted of the demolition of the rear 75% of the existing buildings, deep excavation with extensive underpinning and erection of a new structure in their place.

Phase II consisted of the bracing of the facade to the new rear structure, the demolition of the front 25% of the existing buildings and the erection of a new structure their place.

Phase III consisted of the build out of laboratory, classroom space and an auditorium.  This project is the centerpiece of NYU’s Sciences Program.
