KC UMB – After the devasting 2011 tornado hit Joplin, Missouri, this building housed the emergency hospital. Now after extensive renovation and an exterior and interior dressed up with thousands of feet of beautiful ipê, this building houses a new medical teaching facility. Special milling was required on the exterior to get the rainscreen to carry across the windows, and the interior features a “Wave Wall” that required hundreds of unique supports to create the decreasing frequency sine wave.
