2008 Design Awards

Ahuja Medical Center (1 of 4)

Although one judge says the layout—a massive building surrounded by parking lots—made the Ahuja Medical Center in Beachwood, Ohio, look like a sports stadium, others call it “elegant” and praise how the extensive landscaping soften the parking areas and how the main windows look out over the property’s lakes and wetlands.
