The new building, spanning 110,000 square meters is aimed mainly at start-ups engaged in research and development of therapeutics, diagnostics, and interventions with a focus on cancer.

 

Located at the heart of the building, a photovoltaic skylight greets visitors to the park and serves as a central collaboration space with views.

 

The skylight consists of amorphous silicon PV glass based on a medium degree of transparency. In addition to providing on-site power, they also provide natural light, ultraviolet, and infrared radiation filters, and permanent protection against weather conditions.

As a showcase of sustainability, the skylight will serve as the central lung for the building – filtering air and daylight into the adjacent offices/meeting areas through Onyx Solar PV glass in the skylight areas.
