C.U.C.D. and School of Medicine team up to design a Medical Campus.

Graduate and undergraduate students recently collaborated with the CUCD on a design for a medical campus in Abu Dhabi.  Working alongside assistant director Steven Fett and researcher, Zhao Pei, a handful of talented and motivated students focused intensely for five days to produce a plan and illustrative drawings following an ambitious medical program provided by the School of Medicine.  The conceptual plan referenced the Fareej, a vernacular, small-scaled residential block pattern common in the Emirates.  This pattern is typified by strong geometric forms and numerous internal courtyards.  The CUCD proposal will be presented in Abu Dhabi next month.
