Its volumetric architecture is a constant dialogue with the environment, blending the architecture of ‘International Style’ and traditional rural buildings in Mallorca.

May/September : Eskenazi Hospital Parking Structure Art Facade in Indianapolis, IN by Urbana Studio

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Article source: Urbana Studio

This project began with an interest in challenging the typical notion of the parking structure as an unappreciated infrastructural typology by transforming the new Eskenazi Hospital parking structure into a binary, synthetic terrain. The effect of a field of 7,000 angled metal panels in conjunction with an articulated east/west color strategy creates a dynamic façade system that offers observers a unique visual experience depending on their vantage point and the pace at which they are moving through the site.
