Sorry folks, but the architect who designed that slice of cheese must have been in one hell of a hurry. There's ZERO imagination in it.

I realize that architects design from the inside out, so perhaps the interior is a lot more interesting...before the architect ran out of ideas by the time he/she got around to designing the exterior.

Like I've said before, the Heart Center has no "heart"

I think you're supposed to marvel at its cold, abstract austerity.  Or something.  Crap.

That's the worst rendering I've seen thus far...  I was walking around the clinic campus today, well now yesterday but I had a hard time getting out onto the street and back in.  Too many fricking emergency exits with alarms.  The construction barriers didn't help either.  They're what forced me to take the skyway and then try and find my way down to earth from there.  Getting back to the new building..  I don't think the clinic cares what the building looks like because a large portion of the people going there will take the tunnel from the parking garage on the other side of the intersection to get there.

Its all the same pink marble crap that is a rip off of Caesar pelli...seeing as Bostwick who did some work on them was under pelli at some point its not hard to see why, but not exscuseable.

I don't mind the pink -I think its more important for their campus to be unified in a consistent style.

Really the thing that is most important to a hospital architecturally is to present a clean and ultra modern appearance befitting their function as a place of high-tech healing.  They don't care so much about things like placemaking that we consider to be foremost.  I am not saying these two things are mutually exclusive, just that hospitals don't really consider the second to be important.

Here's an image of the Clinic's stem Cell Center as it appears in one of their publications.  Looks different in real life.

Clinic gets a big gift from the heart
Matrix co-founder donates $70 million for cardiac center

Friday, September 23, 2005
Sarah Treffinger
Plain Dealer Reporter


The Cleveland Clinic received a $70 million gift Thursday from the co-founder of Matrix Essentials, a Solon-based hair and beauty products company, and her family.

The gift, from Sydell Miller and her daughters, Lauren Spilman and Stacie Halpern, supports construction of a medical complex that will serve as the Clinic's new main entrance and house its long-awaited heart center.

could someone post the whole article from crain's??

http://crainscleveland.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060220/SUB/602200307&SearchID=73237233028287

It mentions something about moving the Clinic's cardiology unit to the new Quarries' project in Lorain county ;)


Its interesting how the article considers Fairview Hospital a suburban site.

Clinic to embark on $50M office, garage expansion 

By SHANNON MORTLAND

6:00 am, April 3, 2006

The Cleveland Clinic next week will begin clearing ground for the $50 million expansion of its office space and parking garage at Euclid Avenue and East 93rd Street.

The new structure will add 80,000 square feet of office space for Clinic employees and 1,140 parking spaces, said Bill Peacock, executive director of facilities and construction at the Clinic. The existing, $52 million parking garage opened in 2004 and has 120,000 square feet of office space and 1,328 parking spaces.

“As we build the heart center and the Miller Pavilion and the Glickman Tower, we recognize the need to provide additional patient parking,” Mr. Peacock said.

The 970,000-square-foot Arnold and Sydell Miller Family Pavilion, which will house the Clinic’s new $475 million heart center and other Clinic institutes, and the $95 million Glickman Pavilion, which will be home to the Clinic’s Glickman

Urological Institute, are scheduled to open in 2008. Mr. Peacock said the new parking structure will open just ahead of those buildings in late 2007.

 
The Clinic will begin clearing out a surface parking lot behind the existing parking garage on April 10 and expects to break ground on the seven-level parking garage expansion in mid-April. Bids for the project are expected to go out within two weeks.

Though the Clinic has not yet decided what offices would occupy the new space once the building is completed, Mr. Peacock said the Clinic will not need to lease out any of the office space. He said plenty of need for the offices exists within the hospital system.

While the Clinic is undoubtedly one of Cleveland's greatest assets and they certainly aren't to be criticized for their success and economic impact on the region, does anyone feel their campus planning fails to to create a sense of place and good fit within the neighborhood? I think the campus has been getting better, but a lot of times when I go there I feel like the campus isn't too impressive from a visitors standpoint. For one of the greatest institutions in the country/world to be located in Cleveland I'd really hope to be impressed by the visual impact of the institution, but maybe this isn't so important for institutions with medical purposes and the prestige of the Cleveland Clinic intself. What do you think?

I am not defending the Clinic or UH's configuration, but one tall glass building from Houston says nothing about the urban landscape that the hospital campus creates.  Does anyone know any good examples of hospital campuses?  I have yet to see a city that has an aesthetic medical district.

No, I don't really. I guess it would be difficult for any urban planner or architectural firm to make a statement and not sacrifice the medical integrity of a medical institution. I guess I just wish the Clinic could have expanded on other parts of blocks and not take up so much streetscape on Euclid Avenue for instance. It could have preserved or encouraged creation of mixed-use development between some of the churches along Euclid as approrpriate infill to serve its employees and visitors, instead of completely surrounding some of these churches or some other properties holding out.

Here is a rendering of the new Office/Garage project, as well as a site plan.  If you look at the site plan, you will notice a proposed foot print for a roughly matching building across a new boulevard from the building

Boston's main medical district is every bit as large and functional as the Clinic's campus but much better looking and, not coincidentally, well served by public transit.

Clinic workers to park 6 miles away, shuttle in
Thursday, September 28, 2006
Sarah Treffinger
(Cleveland) Plain Dealer Reporter
 
Memo to Cleveland Clinic employees: Your parking spaces have been reassigned.

Perfect if you've got tickets to a Browns game. Not so great for work.

Roughly 1,500 Clinic employees learned this week that soon they will have to park six miles from the hospital and hitch rides on shuttle buses to get to their jobs ...

this makes no fuckin' sense.

the message, from RTA and the Clinic should be.  We're reducing parking, ride RTA to work!

This way ridership goes up as the silverline comes online!

This is just ass backwards!
