Revit facade modelling
Plenary Health Consortium
The centre was built to bring together new project partners in a collaborative work environment for world-leading research, education, and clinical activities towards the fight with cancer.
The curvaceous design, although difficult to document, gives the building a unique and instantly recognisable image. These fluid forms were created and documented through the help of digital 3D technology and printing consultants. This enabled the creation of tendril-like forms which reach across the royal purple facade and provide a reference to the convergence and exchange of ideas in unlocking new understandings in the treatment of cancer.
