Campus Development 09/2015 DTU Systems Biology It will be easier to conduct and monitor research in Building 225 at DTU Systems Biology Building 220 is DTU's first high-rise building with 6 floors. The ground floor is open to all and creates a covered connection between Kemitorvet and Søltoft Plads, following the landscape with its distinct change in terrain level. Building 225 Building 225 aims to create the right conditions for research, innovation and knowledge sharing in the department, but will also serve as a window into the department's activities—internally at DTU, and externally for collaboration partners in Denmark and abroad. The building design reflects DTU Systems Biology's desire to create transparency between research work inside the building and the outside world, with a building that functions as a living showroom. The ground floor laboratories have large floor-to-ceiling windows, providing clear views from both inside and outside the building of researchers, machines and robots at work. A three-storey foyer with interior balconies creates human flow between FACTS Budget: DKK 60 million Construction period: 2015-2016 Architects: Mikkelsen Arkitekter Turnkey consultants: MOE Rådgivende Ingeniører Landscape: Schul Landskabsarkitekter floors and easy access to the laboratories. The building exterior walls are clad with naturally anodized aluminium, giving the building a bright and airy look. The laboratory building is geared to future changes and the demands future research will place on laboratory. Technical zones are located in the centre of the building, making it easy to move installations and change the size of the laboratories. DTU Systems Biology is located in the northern part of Quadrant 2, adjacent to Søltoft Plads and the large park area to the north. Systems Biology forms part of the continuous chain of squares and paths that connect the many new buildings for the Life Sciences research and teaching disciplines in the second quadrant. About Systems Biology: DTU Systems Biology focuses on areas such as cellular systems, bacteria systems, protein networks, and multi-factorial diseases, and integrates biology with subjects such as chemistry, mathematics, and computer science in research and education.
