International Centre for Life

  • Description

    "The Conference Centre and LifeLab (an educational facility) are in the lower building to the left. Just left of centre in the curved blue building is the entrance to the Institute of Human Genetics and to the right is the entrance to Times Square which is bridged over to the Bioscience Building NZ2463 : International Centre for Life and Times Square which backs onto Westmorland Road. International Centre for Life The International Centre for Life is a symbol of Newcastle University’s pre-eminence in the field of genetic research. The £60million Millennium scheme combines a new block for the University’s Genetics department; a Bioscience Centre with office and laboratory space for private sector bio-technology companies; a visitor attraction designed to inform the public about genetics and the story of DNA; and Times Square, Newcastle’s first new public square for over a century. The architectural design of the complex responds to its context, while creating sufficient coherence and identity to establish a new quarter. ICL is a landmark urban regeneration project that celebrates and revives elements of Newcastle’s past. The architecture and urban planning actively promotes renewal, evolution and development, thereby mirroring the life-giving function of the building.
