On a recent visit to Studio Lilica, Christine met with Carl Royce to view the full-size mockup of the suspended fabric ceiling system for the UC Davis Telemedicine Resource Center. The piece is custom designed and will use architectural lighting to create a luminous fabric surface. This design element softens the environment, improves the acoustics and will be hung along the main public corridor on each floor of the new building.
Working under the architectural team at Lee, Burkhart, Liu, Inc., the construction of the new 50,000 sf UC Davis Telemedicine Resource Center is right on schedule to be completed Sprint 2012. Located adjacent to the completed School of Medicine Education Building, this new facility will be (self-certified) LEED Silver and will feature “smart” classrooms, mock exam rooms, a medical simulation suite, trainer stations, a production studio and associated administrative offices and support space. The facility will be outfitted with state-of-the-art technology for medical simulation teaching and community outreach to rural California communities.
