英文名称：America Methodist South Hospital emergency room to build
这是由brg3s architects设计的Methodist South医院急诊室加建项目。South Memphis是孟菲斯市最老旧而贫困的地区之一，该项目的加建为该社区居民提供了至关重要的医疗服务。加建部分由两个主要元素组成。第一个元素是一个有着浅白色半透明表皮的西南面外立面，高度可见性的弧形墙壁与现状的砖墙形式形成对比，并成为病人与访客的照明灯塔。而第二个元素是一个大型的悬挑体块，坐落于半透明墙壁后方。这种形式创建了一个有覆盖的下客区，并成为主要急症室指示牌的背景，引导访客从入口进入接待区和等候区。
From the architect. South Memphis is one of the oldest and impoverished areas in Memphis; Methodist South Hospital’s Emergency Department provides critically important services to the people of our community.The new addition consists of two primary elements that slip past one another. The first, a bright white translucent skin, wraps the southwest façade.
The highly visible curved wall contrasts with the existing brick forms and acts as a glowing beacon for patients and visitors. The second, a large cantilevered volume, slips behind the translucent wall. This form creates a covered drop-off and becomes the backdrop for the primary emergency signage directing visitors from near and far.
The profile of the canopy is seen in shadow behind the translucent wall, pulling visitors from the entrance to the reception area and into the waiting space.
Once inside, the southwest translucent wall works to maximize natural lighting and minimize heat gain. Vision glazing is strategically located to connect waiting spaces to exterior planters, providing visitors with views of nature. As one moves from the entry into the waiting space, the curved wall draws visitors into the expanded seating area.
The Emergency Department addition presents an integral design solution which responds to the surrounding context while simultaneously creating a fresh identity and highly visible presence.Product Description. The Kalwall translucent wall panel system was critical to the primary southwest facing façade design. This wall panel system enable an abundance of daylighting while also minimizing heat gain and meeting maximum energy efficiency standards. At night the Kalwall translucent wall panel system glows acting as a beacon for visitors to the emergency department.
