Institut Laue-Langevin starts on site

Our visitor centre, offices and medical facilities for Institut Laue-Langevin, one of the world’s leading neutron research labs, has started on site in Grenoble, France. We have designed this in collaboration with local practice TKMT.

Due to complete November, we are most looking forward to seeing the the façade take shape, which is an interpretation of the prismatic refraction of a nuclear-powered laser beam being split to form neutrons, which are then bounced off different materials to see how they behave at an atomic level. (Otherwise known as a sort of ‘zig-zag’.)
