The world is evolving quickly, and scientific research developments are keeping pace. Scientists working in high-tech labs are exposed to a multitude of risks due to the nature of their work and research. Laboratory technology and research requires intense hand-eye coordination, precise movement, manual material handling, and acute visual concentration while doing repetitive and exacting tasks. The flexibility inherent in modern laboratory design focuses on science, but the humans engaged in the work are often forgotten. This presentation explores lab environments conducive to science that are also shaped by an understanding of how humans function in and experience those spaces. 

This roundtable is being offered in place of the AIANY Architecture for Education Committee’s monthly meeting. The committees of AIA New York are the foundations from which the Chapter positions itself in the field of architecture, whether through discussion, advocacy, policy making and development, event and exhibition planning, or other endeavors. Please note that advance registration is required for this meeting.
