Modern Architecture: Reflective Layers (4 pics)


Melbourne-based architectural practice Lyons digitally rendered this stunning faade, which belongs to the John Curtin School of Medical Research at Australian National University.

The glazed panels express the research work of the school at various scales, including the scale of humankind, the molecule, and the codified representations of the DNA strand.

The building is reflective of new aspirations in the workplace and provides an interactive space which allows researchers, students, and visitors to collaborate in team-based research.
