Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven took home an honor award for healthcare facility design. Director Cathy Lange accepted the ‘Hobson’ for the project team at last week’s ceremony.
In their remarks, the design jury noted how “the architect delivered with clean, simple, and timeless design… The exterior design is very sensitive, with arrays of windows, terracotta screens, and glass stair towers combining for an elegant urban expression.”
The 500,000 square foot specialty hospital was completed in 2010, and is the flagship of Yale-New Haven Hospital’s cancer care and research program across southern Connecticut. Smilow is also a model of sustainable healthcare design, and is LEED Silver Certified.
Principal Mario Vieira accepted a citation presented for the firm’s Enga Provincial Hospital project, a new hospital campus in the highlands of Papua New Guinea.
This year’s Hobson, which is given to BSA honor award recipients, was designed and executed by students at the Mass College of Art & Design. It is named for Henry Hobson Richardson.
