Purdue University, Northwest Biosciences Innovation Building

Purdue University-Northwest, a 167-acre campus located just outside Chicago, selected CannonDesign to lead programming, planning and design for their new 61,000 sf Bioscience Innovation Center. The facility will house student collaboration spaces, teaching labs, faculty offices, classroom spaces and become a beacon to attract students from across the campus and support the School of Nursing and Department of Biology. University leadership envision this new campus addition to be a striking symbol of forward-looking student space supporting 21st century education.

The design of the instructional and student spaces is centered around the concept of creating a growth culture. As the new front door to campus, the Bioscience Innovation Building will attract students from all over campus. By putting biology and nursing skills labs adjacent to public spaces the BIB will provide non-science focused students glimpses into the day to day instruction and put science on display generating excitement for the two programs.
