The innovative headwall design transforms an institutional medical product into an architectural element as functional as it is beautiful. Merging evidence-based design with an intensive prototyping process, the headwall contains the room's technology with a single element - its innovative canopy. IDA appreciated how the "headwall united architecture, technology, and the patient care workflow in one pioneering design." The model will be used to build 242 more headwalls for the UCSD Jacobs Medical Center set to open in 2016.

Shield Casework collaborated on the crafting of the headwall to ensure it is also inherently clean. Shield's thermoformed surface fabrication clads the metal framework, creating a nonporous surface that reduces the risk of transferring infections.

The annual IDA competition recognizes, honors and promotes design visionaries and uncovers emerging talents in architecture, interior, product, graphic and fashion design on a global level. IDA honorary judges examined more than 1,000 entries submitted from 52 countries throughout the world.
