The building at Virchow 16 was designed by the Indian architect and urban planner Rahul Mehrotra, who teaches at Harvard Graduate School of Design in the United States. The building houses both laboratories and offices. The laboratories require higher ceilings than the rooms dedicated to administration. An atrium with greenery inside addresses these differences, balancing them out with staircases and through-views that visually link the various levels. The western fa├žade facing the Campus also has greenery and thus anticipates the green inside. An impressive installation by Pipilotti Rist is to be found on the granite floor of the entrance.
