Indiana University Health Neuroscience Center

Indianapolis, Indiana / United States of America

The science of the brain and the treatment of its disorders offer a platform for exploration of imagery and formal manipulations of the project. The project builds an architectural language that translates building blocks and graphic conventions of neuroscience into built form. 
The building was conceived using aesthetic metaphors. Bent to resemble electroencephalograms- or EEG scans- the north façade is screened with architectural fins, broadcasting a striking presence to a nearby highway while providing privacy. These fins create privacy for consult rooms behind as well as project an outward narrative about the building's function. They are built from repetitive standard aluminum extrusions as an affordable way to achieve their goals in a developer delivered building

This 270,000 GSF LEED Gold outpatient neuroscience center houses multiple neurological specialties joined together in one of the nation's largest concentrations of specialized neurological clinicians and researchers.

The building is designed to promote collaboration of Professional caregivers and support their sense of purpose through collaboration and education space, outpatient rehabilitation, robotic lab, an auditorium, conference rooms fitness center, public art & café.
