SUMMARY: This new 116,000 SF five-story building provides a direct connection between the pediatric orthopedic specialists at Shriners and the UK Medical Center. A continuous, curved façade sprinkled with dichroic glass helps soften what might otherwise be a canyon effect. Entrances are limited and controlled with a canopied, street-level vehicular drop-off entrance and the major public entrance via a 90-foot pedestrian bridge. The fourth and fifth floor of the medical center is occupied by the University of Kentucky HealthCare Advanced Eye Center and College of Ophthalmology.
