Copenhagen Plant Science Centre > The new CPSC building


New CPSC building  

In May 2017 the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences took over the new Copenhagen Plant Science Centre building on Bülowsvej 21 A. The building is directly connected to the existing building "højhuset" at Frederiksberg Campus, and it contains 6825 m2 space equipped for research and teaching.

Architecture
The building has been designed by the Danish Lundgaard & Tranberg Architects. The design is inspired by the organic shapes of plant cells with a direct reference to the research areas of the centre. The transparent façade, skylight and the open atrium in the middle of the building draws daylight into all floors of the building.

The floor in the new CPSC building has been designed by the artist Milena Bonifacini.

Facilities
Technology platforms for metabolomics and proteomics will be situated in the new building along with facilities for growing plants and laboratories for sterile growth of microalgae, moss and higher plants. There will additionally be facilities for working with novel technologies with potential in plant breeding. Finally, the building contains teaching laboratories for among other things courses related to biochemistry and applied chemistry.
