Parkland Hospital Parking Garage
As the first piece of the 4 million sf campus for Parkland Health System’s new replacement hospital for Dallas County, the garage established the tone for the entire project. The challenge moving forward was having creative foresight; how to bring out the “Park” in Parkland while visually tying the garage to the interior was a critical challenge for the focusEGD (Dallas)/Mitchell Associates (Delaware) team. Both objectives were achieved by using colors from the interior palette and creating abstract patterns inspired by nature. Architectural elements inspired the typographic standards, which took on the International Style – a clean, orderly, sans-serif look.
