Today I would like to try post something new, it is a building center. To exact I would like to try post about a Biodiversity Center and Aquatic Ecosystems Research Laboratory. It smells an educational program, but to be honest, yes it is. Well guys, if you feel curious yet about this building, then give it a break!
This architecture design which called the Beaty Biodiversity Center and Aquatic Ecosystems Research Laboratory was completed designed by Patkau Architects. This building center was located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This building was built under the architect’s client; they are University of British Columbia. This is a 2002-2009 year building project.
This educational building, both of them are located on Main Mall, the central north/south spine of the university itself. Together they form a complex of related environmental science functions; a new campus precinct organized around a generous exterior courtyard space which is bisected by new cross-campus pedestrian and bicycle connections.
Within the Beaty Biodiversity Center, the principal exhibition space of the museum located, it is a glass “lantern” which is featuring an enormous skeleton of a Blue Whale which is creating a public face for the complex towards the Mall. Follow the break for drawings and photographs.
The one building, the Beaty Biodiversity Center is comprises a natural; history museum, it is a large natural history collection, research laboratories and offices with the related meeting and support spaces. This 11,500 square meter facility is organized around three sides of the courtyard space, with the Beaty Biodiversity Museum occupying the west side along Main Mall.
Another building is called the Aquatic Ecosystems Research Laboratory; it is located on the northern side of the courtyard. This is a building which is comprises area for about 5, 150 square meters. This building is consolidates the interdisciplinary research groups around an atrium, it is intended to reinforce a sense of the academic community and to encourage serendipitous interaction between faculty, students and the various research units.
