ARCH-ARQ: Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center

Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center by ZGF Architects

Design concept and solution: Creating a sense of place was important to the ZGF team. They wanted the cancer center to not only bring cohesion to the UVA medical campus, but also to provide a welcoming home base for patients returning for continuing treatment. Using steel, concrete, and composite metal decking for the structure, the architects defined the patient areas with glass on the south facade and used brick on the north end, where staff and support spaces are located. Treatment rooms run along the corridors in between. Near the corner of the south facade, a vertical plane of limestone divides the entryway and lobbies from the medical zones.
