3D scanning technology solves University of Iowa Children’s Hospital’s curved wall curveball

A vibrant, colorful, curved wall art installation, a premier feature of the new $360 million, 14-story University of Iowa Children’s Hospital project, designed by Foster & Partners with Heery International preforming as Architect of Record, stretches the entire length of the main area’s two-story lobby. Called “The Blooming Wall,” the installation consists of 2,800+ extruded aluminum triangles attached to 1,000+ linear feet of radius wall. Windows, doors, and signage interrupt the continuous feature, making layout difficult.
