Flexibility is of crucial importance in the realm of scientific and biomedical research. The Sir Alexander Fleming Building for Imperial College in London is designed to encourage social and intellectual interaction. The provision of a purpose-designed modular workstation in the central ‘forum’ allows postgraduate students and research leaders to regroup easily, thus encouraging dynamic working relationships. A similar module is used in the laboratories, which can be configured to suit any microbiologist.
