New facility for brain research in Dallas
Though a prizewinner in its day, the circa 1970 building that stood at 2200 Mockingbird wouldn’t have been a likely choice to place one of the nation’s most innovative brain research programs. But, through visionary planning and design, the vacant building located near the campus of The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center has been transformed into the home of the pioneering, 63,000-square-foot University of Texas at Dallas Center for BrainHealth.
The Center for BrainHealth, a clinical and research arm of UT Dallas is a three-storey, renovated office situated on a 3.5-acre site. Completed in September 2006, the new center has office, educational and public spaces including an auditorium seating approximately 220 people, library, numerous conference rooms, children’s work and play areas, learning spaces, observation and interview rooms and offices for the people who make everything happen at the Center for BrainHealth – the heart and soul of the organisation.
The Center for BrainHealth is a research institute which transforms the owner’s vision and needs into a unique architectural solution, creating a building which expresses the unique and cutting-edge nature of the work taking place inside.
