Extensive Use of Prefab Speeds Delivery of Fast-Track Phoenix Hospital | 2019-12-27

The new Banner Ocotillo Medical Center in Chandler, Ariz., contains a four-story, 113,000-sq-ft patient wing and an adjacent two-story, 129,000-sq-ft diagnostic and treatment building.Photo courtesy of Okland Construction Unlike most topping-out ceremonies, where the center of attention is a largely bare structural skeleton, the reinforced concrete beam for the new Banner Ocotillo Medical Center in Chandler, Ariz., was lowered into place in early October—just above the exterior paneling that already enveloped nearly three-quarters of the 242,000-sq-ft hospital. That meant interior work was well underway, contributing toward the Arizona-based nonprofit health care provider’s goal of having the $155-million, 120-bed facility open this summer, less than two years after breaking ground. Bill Smith, Banner Health project executive, explains that the aggressive timeline was driven in part to address a growing gap in its metropolitan Phoenix service area. With 80,000 Banner Health network members located in and around Chandler, “We wanted to make sure they had a place to use our services,” he says. Located on an 18-acre site adjacent to an existing Banner primary care center, the four...

The Best Winter Boots for Men of 2019: From Church’s, John Lobb & More

Winter can feel like an affront to personal style. When the temperatures drop, so do one’s wardrobe options—particularly when it comes to footwear. Rather than dressing to express oneself, or simply look one’s best, winter requires dressing to endure the elements. And as far as shoes go, that usually means boots. It can be a bleak proposition: forgoing fine leather loafers and oxfords for months of utilitarian, weatherproof boots, or risk sloshing your favorite cordovan brogues through the snow. But, thankfully, one no longer needs to choose between fashion and functionality; there’s an array of attractive lug-soled boots that offer both. Where boots have typically fallen into one of two categories, elegant or outdoorsy, the best new boots are a hybrid. The key is their hardy lug soles: a thick rubber base, often with indentations for superior traction, that will withstand inclement weather. But, in many cases, they are a kind of footwear mullet: brawn on the bottom, business up top. The chunkier soles can add a subtle, rakish edge to conservative suits or stylishly ground weekend wear. With options ranging from dressy to rugged, these are some of our favorite lug-soled boots to...

UK celebrity chef Tom Kerridge has spoken about the “nerve-wracking” experience of making his new weight-loss

UK celebrity chef Tom Kerridge has spoken about the “nerve-wracking” experience of making his new weight-loss show. He joins a group of volunteers in a challenge to shed flab and shape up in his new series Lose Weight And Get Fit With Tom Kerridge, which starts on BBC Two on January 8. Kerridge, who previously lost 12 stone, said he was inspired to take on the challenge after he started to regain some of the weight. He admitted: “I hate watching myself on TV anyway, that’s one of those things. But to be taking part in it, it’s quite nerve-wracking because it makes you realise that . . . you really had to commit to this because there’s going to be, I don’t know, two million people that are going to watch it on the telly. “I recognise from everybody else’s point of view how brave they are to do this, so it’s a big commitment at the beginning,” he adds. “I won’t tell you what happened at the end, but the whole process is a very nerve-wracking one. “Losing weight, trying to do it, committing to it, but also with the added fact that it’s being filmed for a television show was a huge thing for my...

3F Studio designs a 3D Printed Façade for Munich’s Deutsches Museum

3F Studio has designed a 3D-printed façade destined to serve as the new entrance of the Deutsches Museum in Munich, Germany. The German-based startup, founded by Moritz Mungenast, Oliver Tessin and Luc Morroni, originates from the research project Fluid Morphology, a multifunctional, translucent 3D printed façade application, developed at the Associate Professorship of Architectural Design and Building Envelope at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). 3F Studio specializes in 3D Printed performative architecture and design. The computational-based design process allows for “environmentally informed architectural design” and integrates functions such as ventilation, insulation, and shading already integrated into the new façade. One façade element, measuring approximately 1×1 m, strikes a snow-white, delicate aesthetic with light shining diffusely through the surface. Within the material, elongated cells provide stability and air-filled cavities for optimum insulation, while thin tubes circulate air for ventilation. The wave-like form of the facade also generates bulges to provide shade, while a microstructured surface ensures optimal acoustics. When incorporated in real...
