The AIA Academy of Architecture for Health's Research Initiatives Committee has just downloaded another new "bench-marking" case study. This 2019 AIA/AAH Healthcare Design Award winning project is the Westlake Dermatology Pavilion located in Marble Falls, Texas and designed by Matt Fajkus Architecture. This project is particularly interesting for its simplicity in plan, the functional flow and the elegant use of simple construction materials especially glass and concrete. We have added the introductory 2-page spread to peak your interest. Go to the Library to see the rest of this Case Study.The American Institute of Architects recognized the project as one of the best in the nation, awarding it a 2019 AIA/AAH Healthcare Design Award.We now have thirty-nine (39) Case Studies of the 2013 through 2019 AIA Academy of Architecture for Health's Award Winning Projects in the Library. We have drafted, and continue to draft, more of the 2018 and 2019 Award Winning projects Case Studies; and we will be submitting most of them over the next few weeks.Go to aia.org/aah and click on Case Studies Quick Link on the left of the page to access the Case Study Library or aia.org/aahcasestudiesRespectfully Yours,Byron
