Medical School Construction Update

Narrow windows went up on the western side of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Each window is two stories tall, which “creates a more dynamic façade along Main Street,” says Ken Drucker, design principal at HOK, the project’s architect. The windows help reduce the building’s sense of scale, keeping it more in line with the adjacent Roosevelt building (the white one above). They also provide daylight while decreasing the amount of energy required to heat the building.
