“ . . . impressive sustainability goals . . . not overdone, but appropriate for hospital building’s landscape design . . . integrates this academic medical center with the existing campus plan . . . ”
The purpose of the University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) Medical District Master Plan was to facilitate the development of the new Dell Medical School campus district, including related clinical and research uses, next to the main UT Austin campus. The plan to create the campus emerged from a list of ten health-centered goals established in 2011 by Texas Senator Kirk Watson for his district in Central Texas. The central challenge of the Master Plan was to manage significant growth in a way that integrates with the campus and city, and enhances the public realm and opportunity—building on the legacy of one of the most beautiful campuses in the nation. As the need for academic, clinical, and research health science space accelerates, the Master Plan creates a framework for growth that integrates land and building use, infrastructure investment, mobility, historic resource preservation, natural systems enhancement, and place-making improvements.
