Abstract

In this article trends in the design of iconic elite life science buildings is discussed. Four main elite life science buildings of the new century are considered. The buildings reflect things going on in and around elite contemporary life science today, including changing ideas about the relation between the public and science, and about the relation of science to the market. Reading trends in the design of science buildings is a way to follow the evolving epistemology of the life sciences and changing demands of science policy.
