The KUMC Health Education Building is an inter-professional academic facility serving the schools of medicine, nursing, and health professions. The program is a blend of traditional and emerging learning spaces that support active, team-based learning, from learning studios to clinical skills and simulation laboratories. The design creates an iconic presence with a four-story glass “lantern” box that places the project program on public display. Existing clinical, research and education buildings surround the site. HEB acts as a connector, linking the neighboring buildings with a 250-foot enclosed bridge that passes directly through the new facility. The bridge features 6,000 square feet of student life space spanning 39th Street at the intersection of campus life. CO Architects: Design Architect; Helix Architecture + Design: Executive Architect.
