Inspired by the southwestern landscape, the copper-clad Health Sciences Education Building (HSEB) sets a sustainable design precedent for the Phoenix Biomedical Campus. Designed in collaboration with CO Architects, the dynamic structure is home to the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix, the UA College of Pharmacy, and the UA Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, as well as Northern Arizona University’s College of Health and Human Services programs. Together, these institutions create a new model for an integrated and interdisciplinary approach to health sciences education and research under the roof of a state-of-the-art facility.
Gizmodo ranks the Health Sciences Education Building at UAZ as one of the most beautiful science labs in the world.
The Arizona desert climate and need for reduced energy consumption informs much of the design for HSEB, from the siting to the fenestration.
