I had the pleasure of photographing this unique educational project for architect Bob Little of L2Partridge, along with Turner Construction. The building boasts cutting-edge learning spaces amid green design elements such as a green roof and interiors full of natural light.

In today’s booming healthcare industry, it’s not enough for doctors and other providers to simply be trained in the science of their practice — they must also master the art of person-to-person interactions and they must be familiar with the responsibilities of the other healthcare professionals with whom they will work in the real world.

Collaboration is key. In an educational environment, bringing together multiple disciplines strengthens students’ understanding of their own professions as they learn from each other.

Clean, modern, bright and airy, the newly-completed IPEX (Integrated Professional Education Complex) building at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia is dedicated to training students with a comprehensive, interprofessional approach to healthcare.

The inspiring and energizing spaces are the ideal home for this new approach to teaching our future generations of doctors and healthcare professionals.
