In the spirit of March Madness we created a tournament of ZGF-designed higher-ed projects from big NCAA schools. We kicked off our Elite 8 bracket on Saturday, March 23 with live voting in our Instagram story (@zgfarchitects). Over 600 people voted to advance the bracket and the University of Arizona won the Championship! Thank you to all who played.
Our 2018 competitors were:
University of Virginia, Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center (top left) VS The Ohio State University, Physics Research Building (bottom left)
ZGF programmed and designed the 150,000 SF Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center to consolidate functions that are dispersed throughout the Health System complex and to integrate education and patient support with treatment and clinical trials. Patient treatment areas include clinics, a specialty women’s oncology clinic, infusion and radiation therapy centers, dispensing and infusion pharmacies, and special procedure rooms.
ZGF, in association with JBA Architects, also programmed and designed a new research facility for the Department of Physics at Ohio State University. The project provides approximately 233,700 SF of new construction to serve the current and future research and research support needs on campus.
University of Miami / Wexford Science + Technology, Life Science & Technology Park, Master Plan and Research + Development Building 1 (top right) VS The University of Arizona, The University of Arizona Cancer Center at Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center (bottom right)
ZGF worked with a joint venture between Wexford Science + Technology (a biomed realty company) and The University of Miami to design a new Life Science & Technology Park (UMLSTP) — an ambitious, multi-building development that supports the University’s mission of knowledge generation, education, patient care, and community development. The UMLSTP master plan is comprised of 2,000,000 SF of flexible laboratory, clinical, office, and retail space housed in five buildings.
The University of Arizona Cancer Center at Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center is a National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, offering world renowned translational research programs and excellence in patient care. In pursuit of its mission of preventing and curing cancer throughout the State of Arizona, the building will be establishing a Cancer Center within the city of Phoenix.
Arizona State University, Biodesign Institute C (top left) VS University of California, Davis, Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science (bottom left)
ZGF provided design services for Arizona State University (ASU) Biodesign Institute C, a five-story, 188,447 SF research facility with a basement level. Intended as a “workhorse” addition to existing research facilities on campus, Biodesign Institute C will house researchers from the Biodesign Institute, the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, and the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts.
ZGF designed the 139,000 SF Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science, establishing a home for one of the most prestigious wine and food science academic programs in the world. Consolidating the University’s departments of Viticulture and Enology, and Food Science and Technology, the Robert Mondavi Institute offers students more courses in food and beverage science than any other university in the nation.
Duke University, Fitzpatrick Center for Interdisciplinary Engineering, Medicine, and Applied Sciences (top right) VS University of Michigan, Ann and Robert H. Lurie Biomedical Engineering Building (bottom right)
ZGF programmed and designed the 330,000 SF, LEED-Silver certified facility for the Pratt School of Engineering and the Duke School of Medicine. The Fitzpatrick Center for Interdisciplinary Engineering, Medicine, and Applied Sciences supports teaching and research efforts in bioengineering, photonics and communications systems, integrated sensors and simulators, materials sciences, and materials engineering.
ZGF designed the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Biomedical Engineering Building as an expansion of the University of Michigan’s Biomedical Engineering Department to accommodate new interdisciplinary research programs in various emerging fields. The design focuses on interdisciplinary research with an open laboratory concept that challenges traditional models of laboratory planning.
