Brian Kowalchuk, AIA, LEED AP - Director of Design
The upswing in global recruitment of research talent has added new complexity to the question of what collaboration and interaction space ought to look like. Brian Kowalchuk profiles wildly different approaches for creating productive research synergies, using examples from leading research organizations and recent projects in China, Dubai, the UK, and the US. He examines decisions on centralized versus localized interaction zones, multi-disciplinary space assignments and adjacencies, vertical integration solutions, and laboratory module configurations. Four case studies serve to illustrate best practices for reconciling recruitment, new research directions, research culture change, and global competition in new and upgraded facilities.
