Salk Institute for Biological Studies

ORGANIZATION

Nonprofit bioscience research facility near San Diego, California.

"In 1959, Salk and architect Louis Kahn began a unique partnership to design a truly distinguished research facility. The March of Dimes, which has generously continued to support the Salk Institute over its history, provided the seed money. The San Diego City Council gifted the land where the facility is built -- a decision that was overwhelmingly approved and affirmed by the people of San Diego in a special referendum."

Campus architecture designed by Louis Kahn.
