NYU Emergency Department

The NYU Emergency Department was designed as an addition to Tisch Hospital, located on 1st Ave. The building provides separate entrances for ambulance traffic and the public. The interior contains a waiting area for patients as well as medical emergency spaces. On the roof of the addition, (2) air-handling units are planned to service the adjacent building.

A screenwall, composed of backlit etched-glass panels, hides the mechanical units from the street while announcing the hospital’s new point of entry. The translucent box sits on a stone wall, which reaches outside the building to separate ambulance traffic from the pedestrian flow.
