Ballinger architect Sarah J. Blitzer, RA coauthored an article about COVID-19’s potential impact on hospital design, published in the January/February 2021 issue of Medical Construction & Design. She collaborated with two Columbia University Irving Medical Center residents, Nicholas J. Shea, MD, MS and David Blitzer, MD. The observations, based on the residents’ experience treating COVID patients and Sarah’s understanding of healthcare design, focus on flexibility, infection control and social distancing.
Ballinger’s Interdisciplinary Life Sciences Building at the University of Maryland Baltimore County was featured in the Spring 2020 issue of Context, a quarterly magazine published by the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The issue is dedicated to the concept of collaboration.
The design profile focuses on the collaboration between UMBC, Ballinger and Volkan Alkanoglu, the artist responsible for “In Flight”, a dynamic installation in the building commons.
