Steve Wilson’s two-story gemeaux glass structural wall serves as an artistic pillar of the new Cancer Center. The Meditation Art Wall, as part of the healing arts program, creates an environment for patients and the families to find a moment of respite and repose.

The “Mediation Art Wall” is a key architectural feature that sets the tone of the cancer center when entering the atrium upon arriving in the facility.

The faceted wall provides additional impact within the second floor waiting area with an over-look into the light-filled atrium.

The wall is experienced intimately in the second floor meditation room, located behind the architectural glass. The concept, derived

by the architects and design team, was to convey a dramatic connection between the physcial and emotional aspects of the healing process.
