Brian Zabloudil Profile

"It has been my pleasure to work with Brian over the last several years on a variety of different facility design and master planning projects. Brian brings an infectious enthusiasm and fresh perspective to each project. Throughout the design process he is diligent in listening to the needs of the end-user and thoroughly understanding the challenges they face. His questions are thoughtful and integral in leading the team towards innovative solutions and designs that will endure over time. 

No matter the size or scale of project or any other number of undetermined variables, when I hear Brian is assigned to our project I know I'm in good hands."

PROJECT: All Children's-Johns Hopkins Translational Research Building
All Children's-Johns Hopkins Translational Health BuildingDownload Profile


A Translational Health Research Building  that bridges the gap between researchers and clinicians.  A highly collaborative environment that encourages the exchange of knowledge and ideas; an environment that fosters clinical breakthroughs. This new 200,000 square foot facility is on the very leading edge of pediatric translational health research.  HDR is also beginning a new master plan for All Children's that will tie together multiple institutes and consolidate services to create operational efficiencies.

PROJECT: Vidant Children's Hospital

The new James and Connie Maynard Children's Hospital was born out of the need recognized by Vidant Medical Center to consolidated pediatric services that were previously scattered throughout an adult hospital into a new facility.  The new 65,000 square foot facility is designed as a playful yet sophisticated healing environment that creates a new brand and identity in the community.  As families approach the hospital backlit blue colored glass panels and tensile fabric canopies create a dynamic new first impression.

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center looked to HDR for our translational health planning and programming expertise for its new 445,000 square foot Children's Clinical Sciences Pavilion.  Their goal was to help foster the important connections between the discoveries in its current research facility and their application to patient care in clinical locations. The building is both functional and symbolic in its mission to directly connect researchers and clinicians.

This 190,000 square foot patient tower expansion creates a distinct identity for what was previously a children's hospital within an adult hospital. This project allowed for the consolidation of children's surgery services, expansion for the emergency department, a new 10 bed PICU unit, and two 26 bed medical / surgical units. The second floor was designed for a recently completed mother / baby birthing unit that is horizontally adjacent to the existing neonatal intensive care unit (also currently being renovated). The new patient tower is designed around a more sophisticated material palette and architectural language and provides a striking icon at the gateway to the overall campus.
