When designing for scientific discovery we go above and beyond functional requirements, —creating inspiring collaborative workplaces where researchers can make the discoveries that will shape our future. This is no truer than in University of California, San Francisco Pride Hall: the new research and academic building at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (ZSFG) that opened this week.
Pride Hall includes 140,000 square feet of assignable space, with conference rooms, wet labs, dry labs, and surgical training and simulation facilities.
Previously the UCSF researcher’s laboratory space was scattered across the ZSFG campus. We went beyond collocating these spaces, designing circulation paths and amenities to encourage researchers, physicians and medical students to cross-paths.
“Both San Francisco and UCSF are known for being on the cutting edge of new ideas that change the world and people’s lives. Pride Hall will continue that legacy of bringing the best research to solve our most challenging health problems and pursue the next great idea in science,” said San Francisco Mayor, London Breed of the opening.
