The Challenge

Medical complexes struggle to establish a public realm that is safe, inviting, and easy to navigate. Their dense urban setting often precludes attention to the connective tissue – the streets, sidewalks and public spaces – which enable a stronger identity to emerge.


The plan takes advantage of exterior spaces the institutions already have, like drop-off areas, courtyards and alleyways while shared streets connect them into a network.

The Results

The institutional partners are establishing short, medium and long-range priorities to enhance the physical environment.
