Photographer Peter Clarke has sent us images of SAHMRI, the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute designed by Woods Bagot.
Woods Bagot is working with the South Australian Government to establish the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI). The institute’s nine research modules will house up to 700 researchers looking at ways to foster innovation and improvements in health services, leading to improved health outcomes for the whole community.
The sculptural qualities of SAHMRI’s form aim to inspire and promote the building’s function. The transparent facade showcases two internal atriums, while the building’s form is further expressed by its unique triangulated dia-grid facade inspired by the skin of a pine cone.
The form’s articulated skin adapts and responds to its environment, becoming a living organism that responds to the position of the sun.
