Our concept drew inspiration from Abogen’s research stage work with genomes, understanding them as the foundational building blocks of the human body. The representation of chromosomes are simple geometric forms, links, which when aggregated generate complex geometries and patterns. Each part is a module of the whole, which allows for complex yet controlled scaling. The design for the Abogen center too begins with simple geometries and forms (the building blocks of architecture), which are then deployed across the site at a range of scales to serve different functions creating a beautiful, functional complex from the basis of a simple 60° angle. The HQ and R+D buildings are sited at the intersection of the main road, making them the face of the project, whilst affording views back to the Wusong River. The production buildings are then arrayed around the principal buildings on the east of the site. This creates the opportunity for a protected park space to function as the connector between buildings. This vision synthesizes the fundamental forms of architecture and nature, to create a building complex serving the frontiers of science and biotechnology.
