Description of Paul O'Gorman Building
UCL Cancer Institute is located here in the Paul O'Gorman Building in Huntley Street at the heart of the UCL campus.
The building comprises 5 floors, totalling 4,500 square metres of specialist laboratory space, with the infrastructure to support the modern technologies required to conduct cancer research. It will ultimately house over 350 scientific staff, at least half of whom will be new recruits to UCL.
The panels on the facade were designed to block electromagnetic waves, whose shapes are the inspiration for the pattern of the panels.
The building received a RIBA award in 2009.
