Cannon Design's 375,000-square-foot cancer center opened in spring 2011, combining all of University Hospitals' cancer departments under one roof (the health-care system is an affiliate of Case Western Reserve University). Located on the edge of the Case Medical Center campus next to a linear park and connected to the existing hospital, the center is another head-turning structure in University Circle. The architects stacked 10 floors of services between swerving glass curtain walls that bring daylight and distant views of Lake Erie to patient and treatment rooms.
