Healing. It is the most gratifying of all human experiences. Coping with cancer isnt just a visit to the doctors office. Its a journey. It involves researchers. Physicians. Families. A community. A space must be a destination of hope. Of health. And ultimately, of healing.
Inspired to serve the needs of a nation by the long-distance cancer journey of their sovereign leader, the King Hussein Cancer Center (KHCC) brings an iconic healing destination close to home. The design embodies a dynamic balance of strong contextual influences, bolstering the reputation of the center as the premier, regional destination for the treatment and research of cancer. Responding to dramatic contrasts of the surrounding region, the architecture, interiors and landscape reflect environment, climate, geography and culture. For the people of Jordan, the cancer center will offer the most advanced cancer technology available to date. It is envisioned to be a healing environment for the mind, body and spirit addressing the full range of medical, psychological and social issues associated with cancer care.
