The Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University is a centre specializing in bioscience infrastructure. It is actually two buildings, finished in 2004 and 2006. They are connected via a glass walkway. Building B is also the first to achieve a LEED Platinum status on the ASU campus, with Building A achieving LEED Gold. Featuring large expanses of glass, the facilities attempt to bring the scientific source of inspiration indoors. All offices have views of a Sonoran Desert garden. A central atrium skylight runs the length of both buildings, allowing natural light to infuse all four levels. The eastern elevation of buildings A and B comprise an expansive area of glass that sweeps around the buildings' corners, while western elevations are primarily masonry in order to block out the punishing desert sun and to reflect the architecture of the adjacent ASU campus. Another interesting feature is the dual internal louver systems which combine automatic and manual control to the shading.
