We were one of four firms invited to enter a national competition for the design of a new Arizona State Hospital. Our entry featured a contemporary interpretation of southwestern Pueblo architecture organized around a house, neighborhood and downtown model. We used fractured forms to minimize the building’s apparent size while maintaining strong internal organization and scale.
The initial phase contained 200 adult and 24 adolescent beds with accommodations for a fifty percent expansion.
