Applied Science Hub is an open, bright, and efficient research and development centre, housing state-of-the-art facilities and aiming for LEED Gold certification. Neat and coherent, the volumetric composition contributes to the dynamism of the users' path. The verticality expressed by the curtain wall of the 4 upper floors establishes the pavilion's belonging to the built framework of the campus. The use of the curtain wall thus opens the door to the use of a renewed vocabulary, precursor to this new development on the site, and echoing the avant-garde research taking place in the pavilion.
