    • Array Architects: New from the ground up, the Emblem Health Medical Office Building was strategically located near major transportation to attract patients to the System’s expanding services.

Physician practices are located on the top three floors of the building with a draped and articulated glass wall. The folding glass wall was parametrically designed by Array Architects to mitigate the late afternoon solar gain, as well as provide stunning views of the city from the waiting areas.
