  • SmithGroup: To optimize the experience for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Polytrauma and Blind Rehabilitation Center’s visually impaired patients, SmithGroup worked with architect Chris Downey, who lost his sight shortly before the project began. Chris and the design team worked in a diverse sensory palette of tactile, visual, and auditory elements to provide an immersive healing experience. (© 2017 Tim Griffith and Kyle Jeffers)
