"Building a home for scientists": the Novartis Welcome centre in Shanghai

"Laboratories are both monasteries and space stations, redolent of the great ideas of generations past and of technologies topple the future. Yet standard lab design has changed little over recent years. Mark C. Fishman, scientist and physician, describes how to build labs as homes for scientists, to accommodate not just their fancy tools but also their personalities. The book explores the roles of labs through history, from the alchemists of the Middles Ages to the chemists of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and to the geneticists and structural biologists of today."
