This beige looking lab is located next to one of the city entry roads, near the university. It has an industrial use yet it’s an institutional sediment. It’s also a building boundary between the urban and nature: it starts at the 'asphalt' but is behind the foothills of mount Igueldo. With an urban presence and s base of basalt and glass which gives it an air of "pedestal". The Nanogune consists of a tower of 6 storeys and 6 boxes, has an area of 6,000 sqm and is covered with a "skin" that gives it a gray or golden shine. The building has a bioclimatic façade, "a kind of thermal quilt" in the words of the architect. Exterior esthetics are important to fit the landscape, in the interior a complicated system of protection is required. The most impecible one is the 'clean room', devoted to research and where "not a speck of dust" can enter. Both this room and the basement laboratories are built in a tight space, isolated from any vibration, electromagnetic interference, noise and dirt.
