KUMC Health Education Building
Creating a ripple effect through health education
Location: Kansas City, KS
Size: 171,000 SF
“The soaring space between the transparent enclosure and the functional ‘box’ within is flooded with light, creating architectural design without compromising a sense of institutional purpose.”
Designed through a partnership with CO Architects, the spaces inside the HEB include technology-enhanced environments for experiential learning (active classrooms, simulation center, clinical skills labs and learning studios and labs), clinical training and design of spaces that enhance the social and collaborative aspects of learning. The ripple effect of this new facility can be felt throughout campus as current education space is reused in new ways.
