Birmingham: UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center
UAB’s Comprehensive Cancer Center was renovated in 2014 by Williams Blackstock Architects in association with Boston-based Payette Architects. An aim of the new design was to strengthen collaboration among researchers. A five-story, sky-lit atrium serves as the heart of the building with offices clustered around this central collaborative area. The typical maze of corridors and labs commonly found in older research buildings was converted into new research spaces organized around the atrium core. The project won the 2014 AIA Birmingham Merit Award and AIA Alabama Honor Award.
