Duarte, California

 Situated in the heart of the Duarte campus, the design for the new Medical Innovation and Cancer Research Museum was to provide an inspirational setting to celebrate City of Hope’s 100-year anniversary. The project consisted of three separate buildings situated around a circular courtyard which preserves an old magnolia tree as its centerpiece.  The museums are flooded with natural light through large spanning windows and clerestories. Retractable glass doors open to the courtyard and large park, giving the museum the flexibility to host large events. A large cantilever roof provides shade for the museum against the Duarte heat.

A central courtyard is bordered with a doubly curved, cantilever concrete wall that transitions into floating seating.

Each building on the museum campus is unique, with long spans and cantilevers to create open space ideal for gatherings.
