Completed in 2017

The University of Kansas Medical Center Health Education Building boasts a unique architectural concept—a striking "building-within-a-building" design characterized by a transparent 'lantern box'. This innovative structure envelops two interior components accented with terracotta 'ribs', creating a visually captivating and functionally efficient space. The incorporation of a green roof and advanced temperature controls further elevate the building's sustainability and environmental performance.

Central to the design's success are the state-of-the-art curtain wall systems, storefront framing, and entrances. These elements not only optimize natural daylighting within the interior spaces but also illuminate the building after dark, offering students, faculty, and visitors a mesmerizing view of the bustling activity within. This seamless integration of architectural and technological features transforms the Health Education Building into a beacon of innovation and excellence within the University of Kansas Medical Center campus.
