KORNBERG ASSOCIATES I ARCHITECTS SELECTED TO DEVELOP DESIGN FOR NEW STANFORD UNIVERSITY IMAGING CENTER

MENLO PARK, CA, June 29, 2009 -- Kornberg Associates | Architects (www.kornberg.com) has been selected by Stanford University to design a new Cognitive & Neurobiological Imaging Center. Ken Kornberg, president and founder, made the announcement. The firm has worked with Stanford University since 1980 and has completed 20 projects over the past 30 years, one of which is the two-story, 32,000 square-foot office building for the Stanford Linear Accelerator. They are also working on the new three story 35,000 square-foot Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR).

The School of Humanities and Sciences (H&S) awards nearly 80 percent of Stanford undergraduate degrees and more than 40 percent of doctoral degrees at Stanford. The school has more than 500 faculty members, 28 departments, and 19 interdisciplinary degree programs, along with a number of non-degree granting programs and 20 research centers and teaching resources.

According to Kornberg, the project, scheduled for completion in Fall 2010, will locate a functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) device and a magnetoencephalography (MEG) unit among the Cognitive Neurobiological Imaging researchers in the Psychology Department.

The two sites provided for the new imaging facilities are located in Jordan Hall, a 19th century stone structure built as part of the original historic Stanford Quadrangle. Both sites are primarily interior spaces. The MEG will be located in interior space on the 4th floor and the MRI facility will be in the basement of the west wing. The MEG will be located in existing interior office space and requires the complete demolition and renovation of 1,160 ft2. The MRI facility will displace 3,200 ft2 of mixed use space in the basement.

"Many of the Psychology Department research investigators have a long walk to the edge of the medical school campus for routine imaging and subject training procedures," said Kornberg. "By locating these devices in Jordan Hall, researchers will be able to eliminate travel time and also stay within their office and research areas while they perform vital activities for their research."

Kornberg Associates I Architects (www.kornberg.com), established in 1979, is the world's oldest, independent lab/research design firm. The company provides a full range of architectural services and has completed more than 500 projects worldwide.

These have included pharmaceutical and biomedical research labs, clinical care facilities, medical centers, office/administrative buildings, conference centers and schools. Project scale ranges from tenant improvement/renovation to complete buildings and campuses. Offices are located in Menlo Park and San Diego, CA; and Tokyo.
