That's a nice-looking building. It was built in 2006 and really captures a particularly minimalist glass-and-color-burst aesthetic (the building reminds me of a larger, more technical Pompidou Center at least, and that building has been around since 1977). I'm curious about how energy-efficient all that glass is.
I think I just like labs with plenty of window space. It may be that the natural light cycles provide a constant reminder of the power of omnipresent natural processes. Or, it may be symbolic of the open exchange and transparent review characteristic of an ideal scientific process. The colors are nice, too. They're always a great way to find your way around a building and orient yourself.* Little details like that can really make the process of science much more enjoyable and efficient.
*In the absence of colorblindness, of course. Perhaps each area of a building could have a corresponding color and pattern.
