A Final Model


What have I been doing for the last three weeks? Making this:

Pile of lasercut pieces

Well, then taking that and making it into this:

Aerial view of surgical clinic

Technorati Tags: , , ,

This is the surgical clinic portion of my research center: a surgery, patient rooms, physical therapy, so forth. There's also a two-story wing that extends over a nearby building for psychological therapy rooms and other forms of non-invasive work.

The building is designed as a series of modules connected by a scaffold of collaborative workspaces. Sometimes the modules are used as offices, sometimes as patient rooms, exam rooms, or for other functions.


As the building rises, it pulls back and creates wells of light that penetrate the fairly wide building (another building in the center is much wider than this, but has a particular reason for blocking light from its center).

Roof garden

This is the part I'm not sure about in the model: I wanted the scaffold to rise up around this section of the building, but it's just not working as designed.

Iffy scaffolding

Fortunately, in two hours, our mid-term review begins, complete with Big Name Architecture Critic in town for a lecture, who will be tearing us to pieces.

I have four more weeks of work left.
