The San Francisco office of Anshen + Allen, an international architecture firm and a leader in healthcare design, was tasked with building one of the most seismically safe and family-friendly hospitals in the country. The firm used ArchiCAD and other advanced technologies to design a hospital that can withstand an earthquake up to the magnitude of at least 8.0. Learn how Anshen + Allen Architects used ArchiCAD to push the limits of design, discover how:
- Advanced technology was used to provide the highest level of earthquake safety, coupled with countless energy-saving and earth-friendly features
