The Allen InstItute for Brain ScIence is getting fancy new digs and the designs for their proposed HQ at 9th and Broad are now available before a Design Review Board meeting. Plans call for three primary research lab 'towers within a glass & natural stone "container" surrounded by two paved plazas and a planted landscape space with a water feature. One unique feature is a media wall that will transmit images that change as pedestrians walk along it.
And in case you're wondering, of course the Allen stands for Paul Allen. Duh.
