The co.LABORATORY exists as an opportunity for innovative ideas to be born, and for advancements to be made in all fields. Innovation, however, relies on interaction with others in similar or related fields. While yes, spaces for both individual work and collaborative work are conducive to productivity, it is within the circulatory moments between spaces of work that true innovation can take place. Innovation relies on unexpected moments of collaboration. The design, then, reflects this need and attempts to foster innovative interactions via circulatory vectors. The program is organized into cores that hold main spaces of use; all the spaces around and inbetween become open space and opportunites for interaction. The three cores split the program up into the following spaces: a core for book stacks, a core for study rooms, and a core for administrative offices. On the ground floor, a plaza and shaded space is created by lifting the building, allowing for encounters between those shuffling from class to class. A grand staircase then breaks down from the cantilever, and becomes a point of entry from the plaza as well as an additional public space. The staircase acts as a lightwell through the building, and is surrounded by glass study rooms that allow visual access and become a way of appreciating the work being done in the co.laboratory.
