Cambridge Seven Associates / Michael Fieldman, Architect



Adding a 440,000-square-foot clinic to an urban site already occupied by several buildings requires a talent for master planning, architecture, and logistics. Making the new facility work for patients and medical staff is no small feat, especially when the building has to attach to a historic structure and sit across the street from a busy transit station. All these constraints could have resulted in a seriously compromised design, but the team of architects working on the Yawkey Center for Outpatient Care at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston used them to emphasize the building’s role in establishing connections with its neighbors.

Like many big-city hospitals, MGH had grown piecemeal over the years. Although its core was strong—a handsome 1930s structure called the White Building, designed by Shepley Bulfinch Richardson—it had become an ad hoc collection of facilities, rather than an efficient or attractive health-care campus. It also needed a new ambulatory-care building to bring together various outpatient services scattered throughout the hospital complex.
