Project details : Architecture to benefit patients Wednesday, May 8 inaugurates Skåne University Hospital in Lund, a new building for treatment of cancer patients. White has designed a house that will give hope to critically ill patients. Instead of placing radiation treatment under the ground as they have traditionally done, patients treatment above ground in a bright building with a striking glass facade in blue, green and red, where the color red is linked to the nearby brick buildings. The University Hospital's new building houses the reception of radiation therapy, diagnostics and six treatment rooms. Traditionally, radiotherapy placed underground for safety reasons, but in Lund architects chose to place the treatment above ground so patients avoid treatment that is below ground. Meanwhile, the placement when the hospital will change radiationapparatus, which is done quite often.
