"Science Spaces like research institutes, libraries, laboratories and university facilities are nowadays not just functional buildings, they are contemporary architecture of high standards. The departments and institutes open their selves more and more to the public and have a higher need for design and architecture. This poses a great challenge for architects and designers as high technology has to be combined with design. Aesthetic and creative solutions have been found: library buildings are decorated with ornamental patterns of writing symbols, color schemes resemble a genetic pattern, and buildings are shaped in an organic way. This books presents outstanding projects of the latest architecture for science, research and education all over the world. An index with contact information is enclosed. available"
