This new project reunites IDC Architects with UK architectural firm Jestico + Whiles, which worked together on the Mountbatten Nanotechnology Laboratory project for the University of Southampton in the UK. That project won an award for design excellence from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and an American Institute of Architects Honor Award from the AIA’s Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania chapter. Also on the new project’s team is the Australian firm Architectus Sydney.
The new Australian Institute of Nanoscience building will be a world-leading research and teaching facility providing the most advanced equipment and research environment for nanoscience.
Tim Meier, President of IDC Architects, said “This is a good example of how doing good work can lead to more project opportunities. Our success on Mountbatten helped bring us to this new Australia project. Our international nanoscience portfolio now includes projects in the UK, Korea, Egypt, Denmark and the U.S.”
