RISING TO NEW HEIGHTS
The Tower at STAR is designed to foster spontaneous ideas and innovations and this can be equated to a theory referred to as the butterfly effect, which states that the smallest change or interaction in one location can prompt dramatic change in another. The design for the Tower at STAR reflects this by taking on the abstract form of a butterfly emerging from a base. This imagery will stand over the STAR Campus as an iconic reminder of the change and innovation that interactions on the campus strive to create.
The Tower at STAR is uniquely designed to enhance interdisciplinary and translational research. Interaction will occur on all floors through connecting “neighborhoods” designed with stairways and easy elevator access to encourage vertical integration. State-of-the-art shared core research and experiential space will allow our students to engage in novel learning experiences. Research development, patient-centered research and clinical services will be co-located to allow students, faculty and researchers to partner with businesses and the community to take on complex, real-world challenges and design innovative solutions. Join us in shaping the future of healthcare education, research and innovation. The sky is the limit!
