University of Texas at Austin Medical District Master Plan

Austin USA

Project Description

The University of Texas at Austin Medical District Master Plan articulates the vision for a new medical district on the southern edge of the University of Texas in downtown Austin. The medical district will be a compact, dynamic, urban setting that nurtures innovation, collaboration, and community. It will be developed as a partnership between UT Austin, Seton Healthcare (Seton), and Central Texas Healthcare (Central Health), and will contain the university’s planned new medical school and medical research building, as well as a new teaching hospital and medical office building (MOB).

The vision for the district is founded on an innovative idea for medical education that integrates healthcare, teaching, and research within an interdisciplinary setting, taking full advantage of adjacent university resources. Sasaki Associates, Inc. is the lead consultant on the design team. Other design team members include Page, which is providing programming and architectural consultation, and Alliance-Texas Engineering Company which is supporting mobility and transportation demand management.
