On Thursday Ballinger presented two talks at AIA Philadelphia’s Forum on Architecture + Design.

Associate principal Erin Nunes Cooper, AIA, LEED AP, senior associate Don Semler, AIA, LEED AP, and associate Shawn Billiard, RA presented a case study of the David H. Koch Center at NewYork-Presbyterian. Opened in April, the 740,000 SF ambulatory care center includes surgery, interventional radiology, and endoscopy procedures in standardized rooms.

Principal Craig Spangler, AIA, and associate principals Christina Grimes, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, EDAC and Erin Nunes Cooper, AIA, LEED AP presented “How Does Architecture Impact Population Health?” The talk explored the complex relationships between cause and effect in healthcare environments and how we, as architects, can design environments that contribute to improving health in the larger community.

The Forum on Architecture + Design is a Philadelphia conference focused on curating multidisciplinary educational content for designers, civic leaders, product manufacturers, technology providers, and real estate developers – all the industries that contribute to shaping our built environment. Held at South Philadelphia’s Bok, the event included over 30 accredited continuing education programs and tours as well as keynotes by Pentagram’s Paula Scher and Michael Ford of Hip Hop Architecture.
