These pics are an artist’s renditions of the Institute for Nanobiomedical Technology and Membrane Biology. The $12 million building will be erected soon in Chengdu, China.
The protrusions on the building’s exterior, which represent protein molecules embedded in the cell membrane, will contain meeting rooms. (I don’t find the facade very attractive!)
The bridges over the building’s atrium represent the X and Y chromosomes.
The interior garden will contain pools shaped like endosomes and mitochondria (photos by Sloan Kulper).
