USA Today, in collaboration with the American Institute of Architects, listed the New Jersey Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health at Rutgers University among 25 “must see” buildings in New Jersey.
The Ballinger-designed structure features health clinics, research labs, and educational spaces. It brings diverse teams of specialists together to find solutions to social issues related to nutrition and health. The building plan reflects this goal, providing a transparent environment where laboratories and open collaboration spaces coexist, thus creating a unified institute ready to address public, academic, research, and healthcare needs.
The list — part of an effort by USA Today and AIA chapters nationwide to identify the most significant buildings in the country — also includes the Thomas A. Edison House in Glenmont and the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Stuart Richardson House in Glen Ridge.
