The Lundquist Institute has been innovating in the field of medical science for more than six decades, from the first modern cholesterol test to phase three trials of a COVID-19 vaccine. It might come as a surprise that, until recently, such important research was done within deteriorating barracks dating to World War II.

Thanks to ZGF, the institute now has a facility as cutting-edge as the firm’s work. The four-story building is the centerpiece of a 10-acre campus, containing flexible, scalable laboratory and office facilities designed to incubate research groups of all sizes. Its facade is wrapped in vision glass, with a gently angled form to the structure that suggests forward movement.
