This R&D project consolidated Agensys four previous sites into one multi-building campus consisting of new and renovated buildings that house lab, office, and manufacturing functions and the re-purposed historic Butler building. The latter is an innovative way to create a thoroughfare and connection to the Bergamot Station Arts Center. A public sculpture garden lines the path.
The new research campus challenges the belief that bio-tech campuses need to be private, segregated places. In addition to the flexible laboratories and homey test kitchens, the complex includes a fitness center, public café, and conference center, effectively blurring the lines between public and private spaces.
