William McDonough Takes on First Healthcare Facility

Hospitals should be healthy places, so its nice to know sustainable design firm William McDonough + Partners has a hand in the UCSF Medical Center University of California on the rise in San Francisco. Designed in partnership with Anshen + Allen, the hospital complex carries a $1.3 billion price tag and will include a 183-bed children's hospital, a 36-bed women's treatment center, and a 70-bed cancer facility. No details on the design yet. "Teaming with an award-winning firm that specializes in healthcare facilities like A+A makes it doubly exciting to explore the synergies between human health and cradle-to-cradle design in our first-ever assignment to design a healthcare facility," William McDonough + Partners notes in recent press material. ::William McDonough + Partners
