Inside the University of Nevada’s School of Medicine Flagship
2023 Best of Year Winner for Medium Higher Education
The Kirk Kerkorian Medical Education Building, a new five-story, 130,000-square-foot building—programming, planning, and interiors by CO Architects, shell and core by TSK Architects—is the flagship facility at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, named for the late businessman-philanthropist and founded less than a decade ago. The interior is dominated by the forum, a four-story gathering space for quotidian student activities and special events, its role as a social nexus defined by reclaimed white-oak stadium seating surrounded by a curvaceous GFRG envelope. Thomas Heatherwick’s whimsical Spun chairs face glass doors opening onto the main terrace, while other characterful spaces—the entry’s curved display wall and integrated bench celebrating Kerkorian, for example, or the third-floor’s double-height learning resource center furnished with colorful sofas and ottomans—juxtapose the classrooms and learning studios distributed throughout.
