Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin is the first new medical school developed from the ground up at a top tier research university in 50 years. The master plan designed by Page and Sasaki Associates outlines an “innovation district” that aims to propel research, attract investment, and signal Austin as a model for the healthy city.

The Health Learning Building designed by Page in collaboration with The S/L/A/M Collaborative is the gateway to the district. A slender five-story 85,000 SF building, it is characterized by spaces designed for cross-disciplinary collaboration all connected by the social edge: a grand stair overlooking a tree-filled courtyard. Page, in association with ZGF, also developed the Health Transformation Building Outpatient Clinics and Health Discovery Research Building (with integrated ambulatory surgery center). The vision is to foster medical education that integrates health care, teaching and research within an interdisciplinary setting, taking full advantage of adjacent university resources. The architectural language embraces innovation while nodding to its neighbors.
