Campus Planning

The essence of the Academic Health Science Center campus is integration—integration of education and patient care with basic science and clinical research—providing flexible and efficient facilities while bringing together clinicians, educators and scientists in an interactive setting to spur innovation and expedite the application of discoveries. Campus planning and design should promote synergistic relationships and act as a physical bridge between academic, scientific and clinical communities—creating a continuum among physician, scientist, student and patient. This continuum supports translational medicine and maximizes resources—enabling collaboration between disciplines, between schools and between clinical, research and education activities. Whether developing original master plans for new campuses or rethinking the plans of existing academic health science centers, Perkins+Will campus planners provide thoughtful designs that serve as a unique representation of the institution’s culture and mission and provide a built environment that is adaptable to changing programs and smart growth for decades. Our Health Science campus plans support environmental, social and financial sustainability to create a long term strategic framework for future development.
