IN ASSOCIATION WITH S/L/A/M COLLABORATIVE
The Stone Family Center for Health Sciences is a collaboration of IU School of Medicine, University of Evansville, and the University of Southern Indiana. All Universities have moved their graduate-level health sciences classes to this building to maximize cross-fertilization of the area’s advanced medical student community. The facility was designed and executed by the S/L/A/M Collaborative, VPS Architecture, PCI Skanska, Bernardin Lochmueller, and Rundell Ernstberger. The building is a sustainable facility which should earn LEED gold certification. The collaboration is a four-story building with a large simulation facility, gross anatomy labs, wet and dry laboratories, seminar space, classrooms, common/public areas, office space, and building support. During the design process, the designers paid attention to the need for a diverse and flexible learning environment that supports continual advancements in educational technology and the curriculum revolution that is becoming the hallmark of modern health science education.
