Allen Institute for Brain Science

The theme of “connection” is the foundation of the graphics program at the Allen Institute for Brain Science. Neural connections, research teams and staff collaborating, and scientists having the resources and technology to connect with the global community are all important aspects of the Institute’s culture and approach and each is thoughtfully expressed throughout the space.

Focusing on the many layers of “connection” our minds make on a daily basis, the Allen Institute for Brain Science’s environmental graphics program reflects the organization’s collaborative approach to neuro-research. The cornerstone of the graphics program is "Pathways", a 150-foot light box with color changing LEDs and printed graphic panels displayed on the building exterior. It is a public art installation that visually interprets different ways in which neural pathways connect– a theme that recurs throughout the entire graphics program.
