USC Broad Center

The Eli and Edythe Broad Center provides state-of-the-art research facilities in a 91,000 sf, five-story, cast-in-place structure with one subterranean level designated for research vivarium. The design features an elaborate curtain wall system surrounded by black granite. The building supports stem cell research in three categories: basic and discovery stem cell research, preclinical research, and clinical research.


This project achieved LEED Gold certification and has been honored as “Laboratory of the Year” by R&D Magazine for its unique sustainability features including a cable-stayed curtain wall and chilled beam system that reduce the need for added HVAC equipment.
