A place of serious science, but also of innovation and invention, The Biovac Centre has been credited as 'prescient of the creative 'infection' that is coming in South African architecture', offering opportunity for playful invention. We were challenged by a tight budget, but this did not deter us from creating one of the most memorable fa├žade skins in South African architecture in recent years.
