Featured Project: Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine

The first allopathic medical school to open in New York State in more than 40 years graduated its inaugural class this spring. To truly comprehend this new model of medical education, understand that the basic science of medicine is being taught at the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine in the context of real clinical problems. From the moment students first arrive on campus, the curriculum emphasizes clinical training. Hofstra University is creating lifelong learners who will be the medical leaders of the future. The completion of Phase II on the university’s Hempstead, NY, campus provides a glimpse into what a medical school for the 21st century looks like.

WSJ Article Identifies Yodle Architecture as “a Physical and a Psychological Connector”

According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, staying connected is at the top of the list of priorities for tech companies when choosing an architect. In this case, the connectivity being valued isn’t mobile computing. Rather, we’re talking about building physical and psychological connectors within a workplace. Yodle’s architecture is front and center in the WSJ commercial real estate reporter’s story about why stairways are key to promoting collaboration and encouraging openness.

Designer Q&A

HLW writer Colette Taber sat down with Senior Designer Jennifer Haney to talk about her work on the JetBlue Headquarters facility in Long Island City, New York. Jennifer joined the HLW interiors group in 2007. More recently, she worked in-house at a large financial services company providing design services for 250 branches. Now, again working directly for HLW, she reminisced about one of her favorite HLW projects. As Project Designer for the JetBlue Headquarters, completed in April 2012, Jennifer helped create a concept and spatial design that reflects the culture and core values of the often unconventional, self-appointed “value airline.” She described a highly collaborative process with the client, as well as a strong desire to bring the office spaces in sync with the airline’s deeply branded operational components.
