HDR will design the new Cancer Hospital of the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences Shaoxing Campus. The modern hospital and research-oriented medical center will include elements of nature to help patients heal.

The five million-sf, 2,500-bed cancer hospital will be the largest of its kind in China and focus on establishing a beacon of health science and technology innovation. The hospital’s design takes inspiration from water and sailing to propose a “Healing Harbor” concept. Through the surrounding landscape, the curve of flowing water will create an experience or returning home to establish an environment rooted in healing and comfort.

The project will be divided into two phases that will include three centers of excellence, two general inpatient towers, a diagnostics and treatment podium, an infectious disease center, a parking garage, a research and education building, and an administrative building.

“Our intention was to create a beautiful natural setting with green roofs, balcony gardens and green-facing windows that are different from what most people would expect to see, smell, and hear in a hospital,” said Sangmin Lee, HDR Regional Director for Health in China, in a release. “This cancer hospital will be an example of what can happen when nature is used to help healing.”
