For MD Anderson’s pediatric care center, we were charged with creating a child-friendly space that incorporated baseball memorabilia donated by the Astros. Add in an accelerated design and construction schedule, and we had our work cut out for us. To make sure the facility’s design would be a home run, we put ourselves in the kids’ shoes—so to speak. We designed the play room to be a fun-size version of Minute Maid Park, complete with a batter’s box, baselines, and stone arches. As a finishing touch, we etched the Astros logo into the glass, for a look that knocked this one out of the park.
