Translational Medicine Finds A New Home at Zhejiang University

Zhejiang University is consistently ranked as one of the top universities in China known for its leadership in healthcare, research and education. With bold plans to expand its current capacity, the university invited the top health and research design firms in the world to develop design solutions for the new 1,200-bed School of Medicine First Affiliated Hospital Yhang and a Medical Research Center.

After the intense design competition, we and our local partner, the Zhejiang Province Institute of Architectural Design & Research, were named the design architects for both projects. Combined, the project totals more than 464 thousand square metres of healthcare and research space.

Key features of the projects include:

  • The design concept brings the research, hospital, administration, housing and support facilities together on one campus.
  • The facilities integrate translational medicine, nature, public spaces and function, and reflect modern healthcare design that pays tribute to the university’s collection of historic buildings.
  • The architecture of the buildings reflects two styles: the first four stories are brick to complement the century-old nearby campus buildings, and the floors above take the form of a white, rectangular structure expressive of contemporary architecture.
  • The medical planning component of the project focuses on integrated spaces for translational collaboration and multidisciplinary care, clinical specialty cluster for an enhanced patient experience and outcomes, and efficient and flexible shared infrastructure to easily adapt to future needs.
