Superconducting Super Collider
Project Title
Superconducting Super Collider
The Superconducting Super Collider Laboratory project involved a developmental study to examine alternative planning strategies for the location of the main research campus and associated facilities for one of the world's most ambitious scientific projects. Moshe Safdie and Associates were responsible for the development of facility design guidelines, campus development guidelines, and a conceptual campus plan. Both the campus plan and the facility design guidelines sought to integrate the facilities into the distinctive prairie landscape of the site.
