International Centre for Life

The International Centre for Life is a symbol of Newcastle University’s pre-eminence in the field of genetic research.

The £60million Millennium scheme combines a new block for the University’s Genetics department; a Bioscience Centre with office and laboratory space for private sector bio-technology companies; a visitor attraction designed to inform the public about genetics and the story of DNA; and Times Square, Newcastle’s first new public square for over a century. The architectural design of the complex responds to its context, while creating sufficient coherence and identity to establish a new quarter. ICL is a landmark urban regeneration project that celebrates and revives elements of Newcastle’s past. The architecture and urban planning actively promotes renewal, evolution and development, thereby mirroring the life-giving function of the building.
