When Science Meets Art

Each year, the Berlin School of Economics and Law (BSEL) sends some of their brightest students to San Diego. For six days the students, under leadership of BSEL President Prof. Dr. Andreas Zaby, study, learn and get inspired. The program is run in partnership with San Diego State University’s Center for International Business Education & Research (CIBER). It has also become tradition that GACC California hosts at least one event for and with BSEL students.

This year, we invited BSEL to visit one of the most prestigious and architecturally fascinating research institutes in the world – the Salk Institute.

The Salk Institute continues to be acclaimed by architecture critics as one of the world’s boldest structures. Completed in 1965 and now designated a historical site, the Institute fulfills founder Dr. Jonas Salk’s vision of a facility with open, unobstructed laboratory interiors set in a dramatic location that inspires creativity among its researchers. The Institute rests on coastal bluffs in La Jolla, California, 350 feet above the Pacific Ocean on a 27-acre site donated by the City of San Diego.
