AIA Chicago, in partnership with The CARITAS Project and the AIA Chicago Healthcare Knowledge Community (CAIA HCKC), presents the work of students to: expand our thinking; challenge our paradigms; illustrate new, more desirable futures; and inspire our imagination of what is possible. This panel discussion – led by Terence Houk and David Nienhueser – will consist of students from around the world, who have come to Chicago to participate in a hosted Design Charrette on the previous Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. These students will present their designs in this presentation, for comment from a panel of guest generative space experts, and discussion with the attendees.
On Wednesday morning, the summary findings of this presentation will be a featured event, available for all Symposium attendees to learn from. Another HFSE exclusive, this experience is a first-ever program to explore how design will be used to create ‘A Place to Flourish’® for our elders, in a manner that assumes an accountability for both systemic and sustainable improvement to individual lives, organizational effectiveness, and overall community wellbeing. This event is also a featured program within the inaugural, first annual, ‘Generative Space Week’, that will begin on 27 September, with events occurring throughout the world to demonstrate the tangible benefits of generative space.
With a panel of invited generative space experts, facilitated by speakers listed below.
The AIA Student Charette, being featured at this year’s HFSE, is an attempt to provide both the fuel and the spark to ignite the creative inspiration for this strategic intervention by bringing today’s students together in those conditions that will support their development into becoming tomorrow’s leaders. In this brief session, summarizing the work of the Charette, you will meet these future leaders and experience the transformational inspiration of their fresh visions for a new future.
If you want to learn about the ‘next, new, big ideas’ – this will be one of ‘those sessions’ that you will certainly want a front-row seat for…mark this on your calendar now!!!
With presentations by AIA Student Charette representatives and facilitated by the speakers listed below.

|VOA has been the architect on a number of Little Company of Mary Hospital (LCMH) modernization projects over a number of years. These have included birthing services, a cancer center, dining facilities and many interior renovations. VOA Associates in partnership with Power Construction was also engaged by LCMH to undertake a 50,000 square foot modernization of women’s services. After evaluating the opportunities for the hospital in connection with this renovation, VOA proposed and LCMH accepted a more far-reaching campus modernization plan that positions LCMH for growth and market leadership for the future.|
|The resulting campus transformation project involves 280,000 square feet of new construction and 50,000 square feet of renovated space. This campus modernization reinvigorates and distinguishes Little Company of Mary service lines. Little Company of Mary’s mission, ministry and individual character are evident in the style and scale of the architecture and related interior design.|
|The new tower connects to existing campus buildings, providing seamless access for patients. The strategically located ‘soft space’ within the tower provides flexibility for future programs. The new tower design respects the cultural identification the community has had with the original cruciform inpatient structure and will embody the spirit of the 1928 tower while modernizing the campus environment. A new entry drive court connects the buildings on the campus and creates a clear entry sequence along an entry court. The project includes comprehensive women’s services, birthing, postpartum, laboratory/pharmacy, food service, a conference center and medical-surgical suites.|
|The campus transformation project is modeled on the Green Guide to Healthcare in response to the hospital’s commitment to develop an environmentally responsible building and to maximize operational cost reductions.|
|Proteus Group has provided master planning, programming, planning, architecture and interior design services for the 2010 modernization plan for Saint Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates, IL. The medical center will go from a facility with less than ten percent private rooms to a facility with one hundred percent private rooms by 2016. As the first step in this transformation, the hospital constructed a 6-story East Pavilion with basement to house Women’s and Children’s Services as well as support and conference facilities. A new parking garage to the east, a new chiller plant and an expansion to the West Deck preceded the construction of the new tower.|
|The lower level includes 6 conference rooms, 3 learning labs with offices for the continuing medical education department, facilities and operations, security, information technology, environmental services and pharmacy for the new tower. On the first floor a 16-bed Express Admissions and Observation unit reduces pressure on the emergency department, as well as a 16-exam room multi-specialty pediatric clinic, new ambulatory surgery prep and recovery, PACU and 2 new operating rooms. The second floor contains 20 Pediatric med-surg beds, 8 PICU beds and 4 epilepsy monitoring step-down beds. Level three is a mechanical and electrical interstitial space. The fourth floor contains a Level II/Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with 16 private rooms expandable to 26 private rooms in the future. The birthing center is on levels five and six with 32 Post-partum beds and well baby nursery on Level five, and 14 LDR’s, 3 Caesarean Section Rooms and 8 ante-partum beds on Level six. A roof top helipad with trauma elevator is included in the new tower, reducing transport risk for flights in and out of the medical center.|

|The 10-story, 1.2 million sf Center for Care and Discovery is transforming how the University of Chicago Medicine delivers care for all patients—using leading-edge technology and innovative research to deliver advanced clinical treatments in a superior healing environment that offers the most innovative care for patients facing challenging illnesses. Occupying the north end of two city blocks, the Center is one of the campus’s largest buildings, providing 100,000 sf per floor and altering the skyline of Chicago’s South Side.|
|The Center for Care and Discovery offers 240 private inpatient rooms and an initial 200,000 sf surgical and procedural platform—with capability of doubling in size. For maximum flexibility and adaptability, the hospital structure is based on a grid system that organizes each floor into 85 square, modular bays. Measuring 31.5 feet on a side and 18 feet high, each bay can enclose two patient rooms, one operating room, or one interventional procedure room. The bays can be repurposed over time to accommodate medical and procedural innovations and programmatic shifts without changing the building’s basic framework.|
|Spacious, easily navigable, and lavishly daylit, the building uses design to foster collaboration and interaction among doctors, researchers, clinicians and staff to continue world-class science and medicine, placing the patient at the center of care. Breaking the building’s mass into two components is a Sky Lobby on the seventh floor, featuring central reception, family waiting areas, chapel, gift shop, dining, and other public spaces. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls provide expansive views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. Retail space, including a cafe, at the building’s ground level enhances the streetscape. The passage of Maryland Avenue through the building at ground level provides a convenient drop-off point. A green roof tops the building.|
