Our free exhibition, Open for Discovery, and the Crick CafĂ© will be open as usual.

Discover how the Crick was designed for a purpose: to bring together some of science's greatest minds. 

14:00 The Francis Crick Institute: why, what & how? - David King, Director, HOK Architecture.
Why is the building located where it is, what challenges did this present to the design team and how were these overcome?
