The Brief

Biogen contracted Small Design Firm to redesign and update the corporate entry space of their headquarters in Kendall Square, Cambridge. Small design then reached out to Proun who contracted me to redesign the space.

Design Process

Using Sketchup, Illustrator, and CAD files of the building I was able to redevelopment the area including: removal of some terrium bulbs, re-allocating space for the data-driven terrium installation to the left wall, and finally developing a case layout for a variety of awards and items.


Once the wall layout was finalized, I produced production ready files for the fabricator, as well as help conduct a punchlist. The final design was able to house 12 awards while still displaying the engery creation and consumption of the Biogen buildings.

Biogen is one of the world's leaders in biotechnology and is committed to the development of new treatments for those suffering from neurodegenerative, hematologic, and autoimmune conditions. Dramatic new exhibits at their corporate headquarters in Kendall Square, Cambridge celebrate the technology, process, and people behind this commitment. A kinetic sculpture simulates order from chaos; interactives provide information on the drug therapies being developed, the history of the company, and the people responsible for their success; and video interviews provide personal stories about lives affected.
