Come tour the first-of-its-kind Design Institute embedded in the new Dell Medical School at the University of Texas Austin. Uniquely housed in an academic medical environment, the Design Institute is on the top floor of the glass bridge between the Dell Medical School’s Health Transformation Building (Clinical Care) and Health Discovery Building (Clinical Research). Enjoy views of the entire medical campus from our studio.
Designed to support the tools, processes, and rapid pace of design-led work, the studio’s open office concept is reconfigurable to adapt one space to many activities of work. There are no private offices and square footage is dedicated to project spaces and collaborative work areas where cross-disciplinary teams of internal faculty and staff and external partners will design together. Attendees will get a chance to meet the Design Institute team, to see the studio, workshop spaces, shop, and to view work that features our work across Heath System Design including:
Facilitators: The Design Institute team will be offering tours and presenting case studies. Learn more about our team on our website: https://dellmed.utexas.edu/team/design-institute
