The CCDC was originally established in the University of Cambridge Chemical Laboratory in 1965. Its principal remit is to compile and distribute a computerised database (the Cambridge Structural Database, CSD) containing data for organic and metal-organic compounds studied by X-ray and neutron diffraction.
The building, which is next door to the University Chemistry Department, was designed by international architect Professor Erik Sorensen. Completed in 1992, the building won the Sunday Times/Royal Fine Arts Society Building of the Year Award in 1993.
