PCPA Healthcare and Research Buildings Under Construction
New Haven, CT (March 10, 2016) Three new Healthcare and Research projects by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects are currently under construction.
In Philadelphia, we designed our second building for the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. It is located across the Schuylkill River from the Hospital’s Main Campus, where our recently completed Buerger Center for Advanced Pediatrics opened last fall. For the new 22-story research facility, PCPA has designed the exterior building envelope and interior public spaces. The building will open in 2017 and is Phase I of the hospital’s multi-phased project for the 8.4 acre site.
For Stony Brook University’s School of Medicine, we designed the Medical and Research Translation (MART) Building and New Bed and Support Tower. Establishing a new visual identity for the medical campus and expressing the University’s accomplishments in cutting-edge cancer research, the two buildings (linked by a new educational auditorium) are bold yet controlled forms clad in striking glass curtain walls. The juxtaposition of vertical and horizontal patterns of both façades create a dynamic energy between the two. The project is scheduled to open September 2017.
For Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital, PCPA designed a state-of-the-art, 490,000-square foot hospital and medical office building to replace the existing facility dating back to 1942. We also provided master planning services to develop an integrated campus for improved health and wellness with 116 acres of open space, walking and biking trails as well as a new common area for community activity and enjoyment. The project is scheduled to open September 2017.
The design team for these projects includes Senior Design Principals Cesar Pelli FAIA and Fred Clarke FAIA, Principal in Charge Mark Shoemaker AIA. Project Managers are Chris Koon AIA, Graham Banks RA and Andrew Nyhart, respectively.
