Arizona State University's ISTB 1 building is a result of the school president's vision of transforming the institution into a research powerhouse. In total, 5 Interdisciplinary Science + Technology Buildings (ISTB) will be built, with this designed to be the first. ISTB 1 houses adjoining workspace for bioengineering; neural engineering; and molecular, tissue and cell engineering research to develop artificial organs, biomaterials, and diagnostic and therapeutic devices. The program is fairly straightforward, with meeting rooms, research labs and support offices but it does have the unique addition of a 25-foot tall nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer, used to examine molecules. The design of the building is layed out to encourage interaction between the occupants, as well as respond to the harsh desert environment which often reach above 43 C in the summer. The building is also expected to achieve a LEED silver rating.
