The intention of the design was to put more emphasis on the product rather than the booth itself yet making the booth attractive to draw more clients. Having clean straight lines while inserting a curve form made it simple yet interesting, thus achieving the design intent.

Light, bright and colorful: the architecture of the new Surgical Center on the Oberer Eselsberg in Ulm. The building was designed by the KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten Munich Office, having won the competition in 2001. The Surgical Center / Dermatology blends into the surrounding landscape and, with the “floating” ward block, also sets a distinctive architectural tone.
In June 2012 the six departments of Ulm University Hospital moved into the new Surgery / Dermatology building with their patients. The medical institutions, previously scattered over various sites, are now brought together in the new hospital building which will further improve medical care in the Ulm region. The Surgical Center provides sufficient space for 15 state-of-the-art operating rooms, 235 regular care and 80 intensive care or monitored beds. The building, which offers gross floor space of around 70,000 sq.m., was completed in four years within the scheduled timeframe and budget.

Our project engages in an equilibrium (and disequilibrium) between the full and the empty, in other words between interior and exterior spaces, approaching both as materials.
There are six internal courtyards situated within the four unit complex: two large communal gardens of 350m², with four others interior to each unit, which light the way of the paths toward the rooms. The large open garden, accessible to all, is located in the eastern part of the grounds.

The camel, polar bear and the blade: the project aims to link to the content of the program: biomedical research through the application of biomimicry (adaptation of biological systems and procedures in human artefacts) in the process generation architecture. They take these three bio-types as reference for similar adaptive systems. The camel as a paradigm of functional section. The defense against extreme weather causes the appearance of bumps as storage reserves (water, food, grease, etc …);

The latest in a series of strategic development and planning initiatives by BMC, this ambulatory building embodies the hospital’s mission to provide “exceptional care, without exception.” Located on a highly visible site, the nine story building represents the first phase in a long term effort by Boston Medical Center to transform the image of its Albany Street campus edge. The building will set the stage for future improvements along Albany Street, including a provision for easier pedestrian access and a better defined, active street edge.

- Software used: Given the high rise nature of the project, as well as the unusual geometry, designing and constructing the exterior curtain wall and its supporting structure was critical to maintain the budget and schedule. TK&A used an early version of BIM software to describe the various design options, both in terms of the visual geometry and the physical construction of the components and structural attachments.
