Ginkgo Bioworks 4

20,000 sq.ft

Boston, MA

Ginkgo Bioworks is an organism engineering foundry

that began with a 20,000 sf. facility in Bostons

Drydock Building. The master plan proposes a 4

phase rapid growth spanning the next few years. By

creating a module that locates the lab as the central

hub surrounded by the necessary support spaces, the

growth becomes a cellular process that can quickly be

added with minor adjustments to specialize the more

intricate details of each lab. The 20,000 sf phase 1

will include a new foundry space, as well as a freezer

farm, fermentation lab, and several other specialized

lab components.
