Stanton Williams' Sainsbury Laboratory

One of my key inspirations for my final major project last year was Stanton Williams’ Sainsbury Laboratory which was a monolithic concrete form. The attentive detailing around grout intersections and the uniform consistency of the concrete mix led to the success of this piece of architecture. The purpose of such an elaborate building is to market the UK as a friendly and important place for scientists to work.  This has been achieve by using light interventions to create an spectacular quality of shadowless light within the research areas of the building.
