The Methodist Hospital Research Institute: Entrance Façade

As illustrated by the remarkably transparent and expansive glass entrance facade, the research facility is strategically designed with many open areas to encourage communication amongst cross-disciplinary research teams. To achieve maximum transparency within the client’s budget, steel plate fins provide an economical alternative to glass fins and require less depth for the same span.
