SUMMER TOUR WEST: MALCOLM X COLLEGE AND SCHOOL OF HEALTH SCIENCES

« All Events

Please join City College of Chicago, CannonDesign, and Moody Nolan for a tour of the new School of Health Sciences building at Malcolm X College. As part of City College’s reinvention, this new 545,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility provides learning and support spaces for the community college. The School of Health Sciences focuses on educating allied health professionals and was designed to emphasize hands-on training.

Academic classrooms and teaching laboratories as well as recreation facilities, a conference center, and other support spaces are organized around a student union, library, and roof garden. The facility is crowned by an eight-story tower which represents a “virtual hospital” and allows students to learn through simulated, real-world healthcare scenarios.

Meet inside the main entrance on Jackson Boulevard (between Damen Avenue and Wood Street).

Luis Martinez, AIA, City Colleges of Chicago (lead architect)

Jim Jankowski, FAIA, principal, CannonDesign (design architect)
