Brain and Cognitive Sciences Complex
Cambridge, Massachusetts

Three separate buildings join as one to bridge the active rail line that divides the site. Equally influenced by the practicalities of vibration sensitive equipment and the elegance of world-class architecture, the structure includes: rigid floor framing for laboratory equipment, built-up plate girders and trusses to transfer loads over the train tracks, cantilevers to support the sculpted atrium, and a thin propped-cantilever roof from which the conservatory glass wall is hung.
