Simons Center for Systems Biology / Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects


来自建筑事务所的描述:系统生物学研究中心高级研究所(IAS)是一座附属建筑,它与现有的三层Bloomberg Hall无缝整合。建筑减少了走廊面积,主要用作教师、访问学者和管理人员的办公室,以及正式和非正式的会议空间。设计方案的较低楼层主要是高级研究所的计算机中心。

Text description provided by the architects. The new home for the Simons Center for Systems Biology at the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS), designed as an addition, seamlessly integrates with the existing three-storey Bloomberg Hall. Configured to eliminate corridors, the building has offices for faculty members, visiting scholars, and administrative staff as well as formal and informal meetings spaces.  The programmatically distinct lower floor contains the campus wide IAS computer center.




Simons中心的大部分房间环绕着中央通高空间,大堂、图书馆和楼梯间的组合强调了建筑中跨学科的研究主题。会议空间位于核心周围,通过采光和景观来吸引人群。大型露台面向全新的庭院,庭院中有着艺术家Richard Long的雕塑,同时形成具有私密性但却阳光充足的户外会议区。

The majority of rooms in the Simons Center surround a double height space. The combined lobby, library and stair hall encourages the kind of interactions crucial to the interdisciplinary mission of the Center. Meeting spaces strategically located around this core draw occupants towards daylight and landscape views. A large terrace overlooks a new courtyard featuring a sculpture by artist Richard Long, and creates a protected, intimate and sunlit outdoor meeting area.




The Simons Center incorporates many sustainable design features and strategies to reduce the overall environmental impact. These include: the first green roof in Princeton Township providing storm water management without adding new storm water structures or retention ponds; all interior building materials selected for low or no volatile organic compounds; an innovative mechanical system developed to optimize energy use by re-using waste heat from the computing center; occupancy sensors for lighting, temperature, and fresh air levels.


Simons中心重新诠释了原有建筑的比例和细节,并利用倾斜的场地形成连接至Bloomberg Hall的庭院。

The Simons Center reinterprets the proportions and details of the original IAS pavilions, and takes advantage of its sloped site to create a courtyard connection to the existing Bloomberg Hall.



At the heart of the complex is the large proscenium theater residing off the main street lobby, which allows for accommodation of the backstage and other support spaces off Regent Street. This makes the tall lobby space highly visible to the street, creating an active urban presence. Site specific public artwork helps to energize the space. The theater itself recalls the terraced Utah landscape, a composition of warm colored panels, gold-toned perforated metal, and points of light that make the space sparkle. The ceiling looks like the night sky with tiny, star-like lights seemingly suspended in dark, acoustic material that conceals the banks of stage lighting and mechanical equipment above.
