Architecture talk — PIP-II facility — Thursday, Feb. 14, noon-1 p.m., One West

Do you love architecture or design? Are you curious about the PIP-II project? Want to see the future of Fermilab?

Come to One West on Thursday, Feb. 14, from noon-1 p.m. for a fun talk and Q&A about the new PIP-II buildings by Randy Guillot of the architecture firm Gensler. Bring your lunch and your questions!

In his vision for Fermilab, Director Robert Wilson set out to build a pioneering science laboratory whose aesthetics and built environment could match the impactfulness of its research. Next month, the lab will break ground for the PIP-II accelerator project, and the new buildings live up to the visual standards set by Wilson.

Learn from Guillot about the site’s layout, find out how the architects and engineers incorporated Wilson’s vision into the design, see how it fits into the larger site, and learn some of the ingenious engineering that went into planning the building. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A.
