The Project Unity building continues the development of the EMD research campus for which Ellenzweig prepared the master plan and designed the first two buildings: a research and development building and protein production laboratory, both completed in 2003. The EMD Serono facilities are an expansion of the first R & D building, and provide an additional 140,000 gsf of laboratory and support space. The program includes biology and chemistry research labs, a 15,000 gsf vivarium, and a central link component which houses reception, a 225-person auditorium, meeting rooms, and café.
