UB names design team for medical school

University at Buffalo officials have selected the architects from HOK to lead the design of its downtown medical school.The $375 million project will be the latest addition to the growing Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.

Four design concepts proposed for the 500,000 square foot structure will be on display at the Darwin Martin House for the next week before they're moved to the Central Library in Downtown Buffalo.

The project is expected to break ground in the Fall of 2013.

HOK is considered one of the world's leading architectural firms.

Their design of Buffalo's downtown  baseball stadium in 1988 started a sports construction trend that has been mimicked frequently.
