SLAM in association with Duda Paine Architects designed the Mary Duke Biddle Trent Semans Center for Health Education for Duke University’s School of Medicine. The Center creates a home and focal point for the School of Medicine's teaching, administrative and social activities, providing instructional space and simulation facilities that address innovative care delivery methods and training.
The new center is a forward-looking yet contextual facility that creates an enhanced visual identity for the School and the medical education program located at the heart of the Health Science campus. It provides a warm and welcoming home for students and health care professionals working in the surrounding clinical and research buildings. Elements include a 400-seat meeting room/conference center, a team based lecture hall, and 2 floors of instructional labs and simulation.
