The new building is the first of a larger campus masterplan, which will be jointly executed by Piano and the architecture firm Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM). Construction and design of the other building, Lenfest Center for the Arts, has also begun.

Featuring double-skin glass walls to prevent the noise of subway trains and let in light, the centre is also equipped with a management system, which automatically lowers the blinds on a sunny day and switches on indirect artificial lighting at night.

The nine-storey centre features two outdoor terraces, meeting rooms, laboratory areas, and breakout spaces such as kitchens.

The building is expected to be in operation by next year.
