yes, it is a beautiful and highly functional building for the utep health science students, which in the end supports the regional health and well-being goals.

recently, i was given a short tour of the building and saw the 'hospital suites' where students simulate and work in 'real world' hospital environments. at this time, some of the equipment the students use while simulating nursing, pharma, and kinesiology situations surpass equipment in el paso's hospitals. overall, the environment provides a large area for students to work on their school work, and contains a snack bar with subs, and beverages. adjacent to this, and just inside the main entrance, three large study areas with podlike tables allow all utep students areas to plug-in and work using their electronic devices.

its interior features exhibitions of Bhutanese art, and its furniture, window treatments, and floor coverings reflect its Bhutanese design influence. and although it was recently declared a mere 'pastiche' of Bhutan, its architecture, i believe, combines the best of form, function and aesthetics in order to provide utep health science students the best possible learning and practicing environments.

I need to update the images in a new post. I've taken a tour of the building, which is so amazing and quite beautiful--even the classrooms and study areas are state-of-the-art, and embellished with bhutanese floor covering, upholstery, and works of art. The lower floor has a complete working hospital multi-bed suite. Learning as a group kinesiology, nursing, and pharmacy students interact and work together as they would do in a hospital.

Sometimes you need to get away from it all.

And sometimes, it's time to return and be part of the larger world.  Between the first of 2023 and February 14, I painted many watercolo...
