“ . . . space analysis master plan is compelling . . . . it was well done . . .”
The dynamic, flexible and living Space Master Plan allows for changes in the annual faculty projections, the annual space utilization review and the review of project sequencing for implementation plans, changes in space assignment to buildings, and new building options. School of Medicine space needs will change over the next 20 years in ways that no plan can entirely anticipate. The plan is intended to be flexible, to create a framework for future development, and to not be prescriptive about the exact shape or program for development. The implementation plans are designed with space planning concepts that capture the spirit of the vision for the School. The Space Master Plan represents a fully vetted vision for the future of the Stanford School of Medicine and a framework to guide that future. Over the coming months and years, these ideas will be tested, debated, evaluated and revised. Some concepts may be implemented, others will not, and others may prove to be the seeds of new ideas00. The Space Master Plan is a valuable tool and a powerful inspiration for the physical evolution of the School of Medicine at Stanford.
“The success of this space master planning project has enabled us to create a vision for the school for the next 20 years, and change it as we progress, “says Joslyn Gray, Senior Facilities Planner, Stanford School of Medicine.
