The New Neuroscience Building
In the Fall of 2006, Rafael Moneo was chosen to design a two-building complex that will house the Princeton Neuroscience Institute and the Department of Psychology. Begun in the spring of 2010, with an expected occupancy of December 2013, the building will cover 248,000 square feet. The building is intended to meet LEED Silver standards.
The building complex is part of a natural sciences neighborhood at the University, positioned immediately adjacent to the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics and the Department of Molecular Biology, and across the street from the departments of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. The building will feature state-of-the-art research and teaching facilities, including space for three MRI scanners for neuroimaging, MEG, and cutting edge optical imaging and microscopy facilities.
