located in san francisco, the helen diller family cancer research building designed by rafael vinoly architects was created around the idea of interaction. the building has over 160,00 square feet of space that is divided between two interlocking l-shaped wings and a central atrium. the two wings are devoted to research labs and the other to offices. the atrium connecting the two is five-stories high and features a stepped façade that showcases the colour-coded floor design. bridges link the spaces across the atrium and cascading staircases connect the various levels. the laboratory spaces were designed to be reconfigurable by the users and were designed column-free to open up the possibilities.
