Description

Twenty Texas A&M senior architectural design students presented five design concepts for two state-of-the-art hospitals proposed as part of a giant medical complex to be located in an underserved region of Nigeria. The architecture-for-health studio project, including designs for an 800-bed adult specialty hospital and a 400-bed mother/child hospital, was undertaken during the spring 2014 semester in collaboration with HKS Inc., the Dallas-based international architecture firm that is working with Thompson & Grace Investments of Nigeria to develop a world-class 100-acre medical service and research complex to be known as the Thompson & Grace Medical City.

This session will enable attendees to:

  • Discuss the principles of designing in another culture, including addressing climate and health issues specific to the community.
  • Describe the principles of international collaboration.
  • Identify strategies for organizing for an international practice.
  • Examine the problems, pitfalls, and opportunities in designing for an international practice.
