Robotic Oncology Centre

The building is a speculative extension of Hommerton hospital, specialising in the treatment and study of cancer. The design intended to respond and reflect the needs of the body, where specific requirements are projected by various user types – patient, staff, visitor and student. I examined light, as a function and as an experience; considering forms of electromagnetic radiation: radio waves, infrared, ultra violet, X-rays, and gamma rays. Demonstrating how, through a series of material skins, the building will manipulate and utilise these multiple conditions of ‘light’ for medical purposes; medical in terms of the direct elimination of cancer as well as more subtle shifts of hormonal levels and the circadian rhythm.
