    UCSF Stem Cell Research Building Gains National Acclaim


    Illuminated at sunset, the Ray and Dagmar Dolby Regeneration Medicine Building at UCSF curves horizontally along the Parnassus Heights hillside.

    The cantilevered Ray and Dagmar Dolby Regeneration Medicine Building that climbs up a steep slope at UCSF's Parnassus campus is gaining national recognition as a stunning architectural and engineering feat.

    UCSF recently celebrated the official opening of the $123 million building, which serves as the new headquarters of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCSF. Inside, some 25 investigators representing both basic and clinical sciences are working to develop strategies for treating a variety of diseases and conditions, such as birth defects, diabetes, stroke and cancer.

    Designed by New York-based Rafael Viñoly Architects, the award-winning facility has received the American Institute of Architects (AIA)/New York Chapter 2011 Design Award, the AIA/San Francisco 2010 Honor Award for Integrated Project Delivery and Design and Build Institute of America Western Pacific Region’s 2010 Projects In Progress Award.

    In the latest honor, the AIA/New York named the stem cell research building a “merit” award winner for its exemplary originality. The criteria used by the juries included design quality, program resolution, innovation, thoughtfulness and technique. Projects had to be completed by architects/designers practicing in New York, or be New York City projects, designed by architects/designers based elsewhere. In all, judges reviewed 433 entries in four categories, including 184 submissions in the architecture category alone.

    Wonder how much faster we would all be getting out of our chairs if these groups would build 10 million dollar buildings and 100 million to research from the same funds.

      I agree.
      Isn't Obama supposed to be selling some buildings on the cheap?
      please . . .test what you already know; and give us what you have. we may not be dying, but we certainly are not living either

        I agree there is something wrong with that picture, we need award winning research work not award winning buildings.....
