Neuroscience and Psychology Buildings
This two-building complex will house the interdisciplinary Princeton Neuroscience Institute and the Department of Psychology. Although the buildings will provide for separate facilities for each discipline, shared scientific research facilities will be included for use by faculty members from various departments as well as outside scholars. The buildings will feature state-of-the-art research facilities, meeting rooms, faculty offices and instructional space. The complex will be located south of the Icahn Laboratory on the ellipse. As part of a natural sciences "neighborhood," the buildings will join other science, teaching, and research buildings located to the east and west of Washington Road, now linked by Streicker Bridge.
The design of the building is intended to meet LEED Silver standards, and includes the following features:
- Natural lighting, automatic lighting controls
- Stormwater reclamation system for non-potable use
- High performance exterior façade featuring outer ribbed glass sunscreen and inner high-performance glass
- Energy efficient HVAC system including heat-recovery system
- Low flow plumbing fixtures
