In the heart of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem stands this research facility for the scientific exploration of the brain. The upper three levels are shaded by an aluminum screen with patterns representing drawings by the Spanish neuroscientist Santiago Ramón y Cajal that illustrate the neurological brain structure.
The building is arranged in two wings flanking a central courtyard planted with citrus trees and crowned with a retractable ETFE roof. The upper levels house twenty-eight laboratories. At ground floor are are classrooms, a 200-seat auditorium, a café, and a gallery for displaying art related to the brain.
