A Tower, A Bridge, A Landmark: Three New York Laboratories
June 21, 2018 | 7:30am – 9:00am, Javits Center

Have you ever stopped to consider how life sciences and clinical care facilities contribute to the social, economic, and intellectual health of cities? The contribution of such facilities is further magnified when they incorporate public spaces for community engagement.

This session serves as its own space for engagement as you join your peers for an invaluable look at the phenomenon through New York City’s centers of biomedical research and clinical care including the Eugene Belfer Research Building, Weill Cornell Medicine (Tower), the Collaborative Research Center, Rockefeller University (Landmark), The Rockefeller University River Campus (Bridge).

Don’t miss the chance to hear directly from architect panelists as they share the innovative urban design strategies employed to integrate three biomedical facilities into the dense urban fabric of the city.
