Site / Facade
Positioned at the entry of the new oncology center, the Lantern’s vivid, uniform glow serves as a beacon of hope and a symbol of the hospital’s steadfast commitment to the eradication of cancer. The panels cladding the structure – cut to represent the canopy of the Palo Verde or “nurse” tree – filter dappled sunlight to the entry and balconies through a fabric scrim by day, and are backlit by grazing the fabric with light to create an inspiring visual icon at night.
Located in Gilbert, Arizona USA.
