Designed by Behnisch Architekten (see the architectural file), AGORA provides laboratory space, technology platforms, offices, conference rooms, a large auditorium and a restaurant.
The building's characteristic architecture encourages interactions between disciplines, among researchers, and between established scientists and students.
Wisely distributed exchange areas stimulate new ideas and collaborations through spontaneous meetings.
The offices are grouped together and the laboratories are open and not organized according to groups or institutions.
The covered atrium extending to the adjacent building creates a direct link with the CHUV/UNIL pathology department.
