The new School of Biological Sciences is a significant project for both CPG Consultants as well as NTU, as it marks the University’s first foray into the field of Life Sciences. In tandem with the University’s move towards developing the Life Sciences in teaching and research, the school houses facilities for various biological science disciplines such as Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Immunology and Genetics.
Architecturally, the project makes use of its two linear wings (which contain the laboratories, offices and teaching spaces) to enclose a dramatic lobby and a generous roof terrace.
The sky bridge linking the two wings is kept transparent, affording a view from the urban node at the NTU Main Administration Building to the greenery beyond. The building is also respectful of the lush greenery within the campus context. It completes the sense of enclosure suggested by the NTU North Academic Complex.
