Christus Spohn rests somewhere between earth and sky on Texas’ southern Gulf shoreline. Our first impression was place-immersive, which evolved into this painterly graphic expanse that is made complete by adding a viewer’s reflection as though walking on the beach. Printed graphics, glass, and wood framing provide the surround for recognition of cumulative and annual giving, major donors, and planned giving, all referenced in plaques associated with named spaces throughout the medical center. As much art as it is a purposeful display, planning for growth both reserves the space and surrounds us with a sense of place.
The feature donor wall spans 80 feet in the main lobby. PDG and Christus Spohn intentionally usurped the space for future updates to the wall. It also makes for a grand display.
The accompanying plaque system uses the same design language and materials as the donor wall to connect the visual theme across the facility.
