KING HUSSEIN INSTITUTE FOR
BIOTECHNOLOGY AND CANCER
The King Hussein Institute for Biotechnology & Cancer will be a State-of-the-Art medical Institute for the Middle East . The site is on the central ridge of a small mountain, in Na’ur, Jordan 12 miles west of Amman Jordan. Adapting a complex medical facility to this site has been extremely challenging and difficult. This is a place of deep spiritual significance in the Holy Lands overlooking the Dead Sea.
Currently in construction at over a million square feet, this design is created to compress the building in zones around a central village square. The main goal is to provide dignified care and entry for patients. As an alternative to patients and visitors entering directly into a building lobby, the elliptical space will welcome them into an atrium plaza with trees, landscape, water and open sky.
Recently DeWolff Partnership Architects was contacted by a publisher of Building & Construction Industry publications from Singapore regarding the project in Jordan.
