While leading the master planning team for the University of Utah Health Sciences Campus Master Plan Update, MHTN was invited to create concepts for the Medical Education and Discovery Center (MED). The MED is the centerpiece of the new master plan, creating a heart and hub for the Health Science campus. Four concepts for the MED were explored, each inspired by the mountain geology of the Wasatch Front. One concept portrays peaked and undulating enclosures, with exhilarating open spaces carved between programs and offices, revealing multi-level daylit trails that reinforce themes of exploration and discovery. Exterior materials in the imagined concepts relate to Utah’s regional palette with the objective to distinguish identity for the campus.
