The Roslin Institute at the University of Edinburgh has moved to a new £60m purpose-built centre on the outskirts of Edinburgh, Scotland, UK.

The design of the new centre, which was opened on 29 June, is inspired by a pair of chromosomes with a rainbow progression of coloured panels that link offices with research laboratories.

The 14,000m² three-storey building features open-plan working spaces with breakout areas, an auditorium and meeting facilities.

Architecture Scotland has already bestowed an award upon the new building, which has also been nominated for several other building and design awards.
