Indiana University board approves design of Medical Education Building

The building design features a three-storey base structure, which will focus primarily on medical education.

The Board of Trustees of Indiana University (IU) in the US has approved the architectural design of the new School of Medicine Medical Education Building.

Browning Day of Indianapolis and Perkins & Will of Chicago developed the architectural design of the 11-storey Medical Education Building in Indianapolis.

IU Capital Planning and Facilities vice-president Thomas Morrison presented the design of the building which will be co-located with the Indianapolis Academic Health Center being developed by IU Health.

The Indiana University School of Medicine Medical Education Building will be situated west of Senate Street and south of the IU Neurosciences Research Building.

It will occupy a nearly 326,200ft² area and address the increasing instructional and research needs of the School of Medicine programmes.

The design of the building features a three-storey base structure that will mainly focus on medical education. It will comprise support and shell spaces for a future research vivarium.

The base structure will also have academic learning spaces, a medical library and classrooms of different sizes.

Additionally, the building design consists of an eight-storey office and research tower in the southern quarter.

This tower rises above the academic base structure’s south end. Three floors of faculty offices and another three of shell space are planned for flexible, research support, modular biomedical research and offices.

The building also has two full mechanical floors that provide mechanical services.

For the new building, the university used limestone and precast concrete accents.

Warm brick accents along the first floor acknowledge the use of bricks on existing buildings that are situated next to the new building.

The tower will be covered with a glass and metal curtainwall, thereby allowing unobstructed views.
