At the heart of the CEA research cluster, which already includes the Neurospin building and the Cognitive Science Imaging Centre, the University of Paris-Saclay's neuroscience building completes the future NeuroSaclay cluster.
The programme includes an animal laboratory in the basement, a reception and conference room on the ground floor and 3 research platforms on the upper floors.
Positioned in a high-quality landscaped park, the building takes up the whole of the land allotted to it, developing a minimum number of storeys for the sake of integration.
The layout is designed according to a diagrammatic configuration that organises the patios, rooms and circulation in a homogenous and equal manner. As a result, the researcher is able to explore a wealth of space.
This interior freedom is ensured by a structural exoskeleton that inherently shapes the building's façades.
