LAB: BUILDING A HOME FOR SCIENTISTS. Mark C. Fishman. Lars Muller Publishers, Zurich, 2017. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 364 pp. with 246 ills. (222 col.). 25 x 18 cm. ISBN 9783037784976 In English.
Publisher's description: Laboratories are both monasteries and space stations, redolent of the great ideas of generations past and of technologies to propel the future. Yet standard lab design has changed only little over recent years. Here Mark Fishman describes how to build labs as homes for scientists, to accommodate not just their fancy tools, but also their personalities. This richly illustrated book explores the roles of labs through history, from the alchemists of the Middle Ages to the chemists of the 19th and 20th centuries, and to the geneticists and structural biologists of today, and then turns to the special features of the laboratories Fishman helped to design in Cambridge, Shanghai, and Basel. Anyone who works in, or plans to build a lab, will enjoy this book, which will encourage them to think about how this special environment drives or impedes their important work.
