The Conference Center & Collaborative Research Center will be next to a new Neuroscience Research Center and NeuroAI Building, together creating a new quadrangle for gathering and collaboration. The building’s forms and materials reflect styles seen across the campus, extending its village-like aesthetic. They are designed to be warm and inviting while offering a strong sense of arrival and connection to active campus research. The serene campus setting enables visitors to immerse themselves in thought, nature, and discovery.

The 53,500-square-foot, U-shaped Conference Center will house private guest rooms, a meeting room, guest laundry, and luggage storage. Visitors will be welcomed by an open, daylit lobby/reception area that doubles as an events space. Linked by a pedestrian bridge, the 32,500-square-foot Collaborative Research Center contains more guest rooms, studio and two-bedroom apartments for longer stays, two small meeting rooms, and guest laundry. Both buildings enjoy direct access to a Visiting Scientists Quad, creating a campus-like feel within, and providing additional opportunities for collaborative exchanges.
