St. James Medical Center
St. James Medical Center anchors the southwest corner of the medical district known as St. James Hospital in the City of Dublin, Ireland and is directly adjacent to the Rialto Metro stop located on the Luas Line that connects the district to central Dublin. The program brief called for an acute care medical center located near the main teaching campus and general hospital.
The concept was developed in two elements: plan and shell. The plan was derived from urban studies of the general organization of Dublin around the River Liffey and Dublin Harbor. The shell of the building uses a kit of parts inspired by the patterns found in Irish lace needle work and the translucent and layered qualities that they embody.
