Ross Cole Lake Nona Impact Forum

The Lake Nona Impact Forum has extended an invitation to Ross Cole, architect and principal of BAM Architecture Studio. The invitation-only event brings together international speakers and leaders from a variety of sectors to discuss connections between wellness, sustainable living, and education. A selection of this year’s speakers includes Billie Jean King, Deepak Chopra, MD FACP, and Sanjay Gupta, MD.

BAM would like to offer our congratulations to Ron Cohen, MD, President, CEO and Founder of Acorda Therapeutics, Inc. on being selected as a speaker. Everyone at BAM has enjoyed working with the passionate team at Acorda on truly innovative workplace, science and technology projects for the past five years.

The forum takes place in Lake Nona, a continuously expanding life science community in Orlando, Florida. BAM has been working with Lake Nona since 2012, and recently celebrated the completion of the world class Guidewell Innovation Center.  The three-story, glass and steel Life Sciences building is the first in Lake Nona designed to attract leading health and life sciences companies.

BAM designed this new world class building for Lake Nona Medical City, the Guidewell Innovation Center.  Having just completed construction, it is the first Life Sciences building in Lake Nona Medical City designed to attract the dynamic mix of leading health, life sciences, and education organizations.

The setting of the glass and steel three-story building completes the streetscape, promoting collaboration with the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute and the University of Florida.  Together, the three facilities form a neighborhood of research and innovation.  The new building is outfitted with offices, research and wet lab facility, and has already attracted leading researchers and scientists.
