Jaques Black

Jaques Black, AIA
Jaques Black has been associated with daSILVA Architects for over 25 years, and has worked with many of the top hospitals and research institutions in the New York metropolitan area. He has a keen understanding of both how client design decisions are made and the procedures involved in the successful completion of an architectural project. Working closely with clients to develop solutions that provide long-term benefits and viability, his project experience includes the design and planning of large and small institutions, research facilities, emergency departments, institutional housing complexes, and radiological facilities.
Among Mr. Black's major achievements are strategic medical planning initiatives for the New York State Department of Corrections and Bayonne Medical Center, as well as extensive interdepartmental planning for the SUNY Downstate Medical Center. He has also designed several large-scale projects at Montefiore Medical Center-including the restoration of Rosenthal South Pavilion, the 210th Street Lobby and the Moses Research Tower-dramatically improving its day-to-day functions. Recently, Mr. Black has directed corporate office projects for the New York City Health & Hospitals Corporation, as well as the master plan for a new entrance pavilion and emergency department at Sunbury Community Hospital in Pennsylvania.

Specifically, speakers Cathy Lord, a clinical psychologist and director of the Center for Autism and the Developing Brain, and Jacques Black, president, DaSilva Architects, were talking about autism and the growing prevalence of the disorder over the last 20 years as awareness and diagnosis of the disease has grown.

"We need to become more sensitive to how to design environments for these people," Black said.
Lord and Black collaborated together in the design of The Center for Autism and Developing Brain, a partnership with New York - Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medical College, and Columbia University and the New York Collaborates for Autism.
2. Careful use of color : Both Lord and Black acknowledged that color is an important part of creating a less institutionalized care setting, however, it can't be too bold or "visually loud" to cause distraction or agitation. The solution in their project was to use muted blues, greens, and yellows in a controlled fashion with the furnishings or as wayfinding. "Our center looks colorful without being overwhelming," Lord said.
3. Purposeful design: Black says it's important to include a range of experiences for patients, but cautions that autistic kids can be sensitive to certain textures. To address this concern, he said the center includes a range of touchable materials, including rubber flooring, matted walls, and wood surfaces.
