The AGORA Pôle de recherche sur le cancer provides working and research space for 400 scientists and practitioners and is located right next to the CHUV hospital in Lausanne. The building was designed by Behnisch Architekten for the Fondation ISREC and completed in 2018. The local architecture partner was Fehlmann Architectes.
The building‘s second skin of aluminum apertures was designed to enhance daylight use as well as climate control. In fact each side of the building has a unique variation of the screen with the north having larger openings than the south.
