Introduction by Andrew Payne and Rodolphe el-Khoury

Overview: 

The Fayez S. Sarofim Research Building, home of The Brown Foundation Institute of Molecular Medicine for the Prevention of Human Diseases (IMM), is an important milestone in a body of work committed to exemplary design and sustainability in pursuit of buildings that are truly restorative for human beings and the planet.

The progressive leadership of the IMM and The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston established a vision for collaborative science both in the laboratory and in the architecture, inspiring the design that resulted from the collaboration of client and designers.

The idea of the building is founded upon the highest principles of scientific discovery, community, collaboration, human health, fiscal responsibility, environmental stewardship and design to fulfill the building’s role to enable the Institute’s mission of preventing human disease. 

About the author: 

BNIM Architects aspires to achieve a deep design, deep green result-through its multi-discipline design practice. At BNIM, we believe that design quality can be defined as Restorative Design. Every project is committed to minimizing the consumption of resources, reducing waste and pollution and restoring natural systems. As a result, we are committed to producing work that maximizes human potential, productivity and health. We believe that each work of architecture, no matter its size, should embrace its cultural, community, urban and natural contexts so that the outcome defines an idea of the public realm. Our projects strive to create beauty and cultural meaning.
