Congratulations to HOK and Harlem Hospital!
The New York Times recently featured progress of the new patient pavilion at Harlem Hospital. While at HOK, George worked on the concept development team and we couldn’t be more excited to see the design nearing completion. The design called for the preservation and display of murals commissioned by the WPA in the 1930’s. The gallery displaying the murals will be at street level and open to the public, spurring an engagement with the community rarely achieved by healthcare projects. Images from the murals have been printed with ceramic ink and baked into the glass of the building’s five story facade, reinforcing the hospital’s role as a public institution with longstanding ties to the Harlem community.
