Morehouse School of Medicine
Hugh Gloster Addition & Gross Anatomy Renovation
Lord Aeck Sargent continues a long-standing relationship with Morehouse School of Medicine with an addition to the first building built in 1982.
The two-story Billye Suber Aaron Pavilion provides both meeting rooms and communal spaces to facilitate formal and informal learning and much-needed break out space. The pavilion is designed to promote opportunities for student-faculty interaction. The central curved stair, located in an open atrium, visually and physically connects the floors in a dynamic and elegant manner.
The second floor connects to the expanded gross anatomy lab providing additional tables to support 100+ students. The new lab incorporates enhanced technology and state-of-the-art workstations to support the vision of Morehouse School of Medicine.
The contemporary glass curtainwall and metal panels of the new addition complement the brick and ribbon windows of the original building to honor the past, while creating a dynamic front door that embraces the future. The addition is located on a prominent corner of the campus, directly across from Spelman College, forming a gateway to the Atlanta University Center Consortium.
