Biotechnology can be understood as a transition from art to industry. There are amazing questions that will allow us to better understand the mechanisms that enable us to function. There are also real challenges that exist in providing scientists with the right tools, while makeing sure they ask the best questions. Dave McCabe highlights this transition from learning about mechanisms of life to developing tools that enable others to do better science.

Designing a Laboratory: Art, Architecture, and the Founding of Fermilab
BY KATIE YURKEWICZ
@ VOL 5

"The sculpture that straddles the lab's entrance appears symmetrical when viewed from below but asymmetrical from all over views, reflecting the view of broken symmetry that is crucial in modern physics."
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory looks like no other science lab on Earth—thanks to the vision of founding director Robert Wilson and artist Angela Gonzales. Under their aesthetic direction, architecture, sculpture, color, and design combined to produce a lab that was revolutionary for its time. In Designing a Laboratory: Art, Architecture, and the Founding of Fermilab from PechaKucha Night Batavia Vol. 5, Katie Yurkewicz shows off another side of the legendary physics lab.
