Seattle University’s Spectator profiled the new Center for Science and Innovation, discussing how the new facility, designed to maximize collaboration and active learning, will allow for growth and expansion across numerous departments.
The design of Alumni Hall embodies what EYP has learned from previous studies about student preferences in residence halls. While students may appreciate having the latest technological or retail “bells and whistles” in residence halls, their primary preferences, it turns out, are actually much more basic.
New Health-Focused High School Provides Unprecedented Access to Hospitals and Hands-On Medical Education
Located in the heart of the renowned Texas Medical Center, the newly opened Michael E. DeBakey High School for Health Professions provides its students with a medical education unlike any other. The first health-focused high school in the United States, the new 194,000-sf facility includes mock hospital rooms, science and research labs, and teaching spaces for dentistry, rehabilitation, and other medical practices. Close proximity to some of the country’s best doctors and medical centers and regular hospital rotations as part of the school’s curriculum allows its students to engage in on-site, hands-on learning, dramatically expanding educational opportunities.
Colleges and universities are looking beyond traditional planning strategies – including expanding technology, reimagining buildings, and engaging the community – to get the most out of their campuses. Emerging technologies – such as augmented reality, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence – will eventually shape what the physical campus of the future will look like, but not replace it. We'll also likely see an increase in conversations between campus planners and off-campus developers and city councils, maximizing the future of college campuses.
According to EdSurge News, Bryant University’s new Academic Innovation Center (AIC) exemplifies the classroom of the future. Bryant built on lessons learned from its faculty, the University’s prototype classrooms, spaces and programs at other leading institutions, and makerspaces in the Tech industry to create a new genre of academic building.
Increasingly, hospitals are providing a more coordinated continuum of care, sharing medical expertise across departments to optimize the patient-centered experience. Medical Design & Construction explores how the project team's work on the new Integrated Care Pavilion helped Stamford Health achieve their goal of incorporating a clinically integrated, collaborative environment that welcomed patients and attracted physicians to their hospital campus.
The Maker experience represents a profound change in how things are being created today, which in turn requires a paradigm shift in how and where students can most effectively be educated.
New treatments and technologies, managed care, and an aging population are transforming the healthcare profession. EYP has played a leading role in bringing health education facilities into the 21st century to help prepare students for the challenges of a rapidly evolving profession. Our brochure showcases representative projects that have helped clients develop skilled and compassionate practitioners, while elevating their programs' competitive edge.
STEM Design Components That Pay Off: Metrics Show Benefits of New Science and Engineering at Trinity University
EYP's Toni Loiacano shares pre- and post-occupancy data with Tradeline about Trinity University's Center for the Sciences & Innovation (CSI) in San Antonio, Texas. Studies indicate that the new CSI is attracting more students from all departments to the building, boosting integration between science and non-science majors, and increasing interest in STEM studies among incoming students at a rate of 50 percent.
In a new article for Tradeline Inc., EYP's Chris Baylow and Jeff Schantz share how today’s scientific researchers are improving their productivity, research outcomes, and technological advances by using the knowledge of many disciplines. This emerging field of “convergence science” goes beyond traditional collaboration to the much larger intellectual intersection of engineering, physical sciences, life sciences, and other disciplines, plus big data.
