The Harlem Hospital New Pavilion is a $225 million modernization and expansion project that will substantially improve the physical and therapeutic environment and provide state-of-the-art services to
the Harlem Community. Our design incorporates the Hospitalâs historic WPA Murals titled the Pursuit of Happiness depicting the history of African Americans from the 18th century to the 20th
century transformed into transparent glass murals, four-stories in height, as the skin of the new building.. At night the mural curtain wall will gently glow, displaying the colorful murals and
expressing the buildingâs community civic and public nature. Construction completion is 2012.
