Program


The following program anticipates the needs of the Salk Institute for future growth. The current 630,000 square feet of research labs and office space must be expanded along with additional facilities to support the entire campus. All expansions, additions, or new structure need to be designed to fit within the 27-acre Salk campus. The area allocations are suggestions and may be altered. Solutions should observe the total gross square footage, within a range of plus or minus ten percent. Whenever possible the historic use of an existing space should be maintained.
