Located on the eastern edge of the National Taiwan University campus, the Cancer Center will integrate various research facilities to form a biomedical axis within the campus and establish an innovative hub for oncological research.
The design of the Cancer Center aims to create a calming, people-oriented environment filled with natural light and wide interior spaces to provide a comfortable medical experience. The fundamental premise of the patient-centered facility is to allow for efficient service, security, and patient privacy to come together in each of the clinical and ward spaces, while introducing natural light and a landscape garden to create a natural healing atmosphere.
The project is a compact volume with an intricate circulation arrangement centered on the ar-cade and atrium. Through several setbacks of the volume, balcony gardens are created to alle-viate the stress and anxiety that comes with treatment, not only for the patients and their fami-lies, but also for the medical staff. Various nodes within the facilities serve as social meeting places for staff, in order to encourage interactions between the clinical research and medical services teams. Utilizing advanced BIM design, the project will be one of the most advanced ra-diation centers in the world and a pioneer in the field of cancer treatment.
