Institute of Cancer Studies, UCLEdit profile
Opened in September 2007, the UCL Cancer Institute is at the heart of one of the largest bio-medical facilities in Europe and houses over 350 scientists. Externally, it respects its setting on the edge of the Bloomsbury conservation area with a suspended screen of terracotta louvres. This design links a Grade II listed building with the high specification new build Institute. A glazed span connects the two, revealing the central circulation core and architectural focal point, a sculptural cantilevered staircase.
