The David H. Koch Center for Cancer Care at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is a ULI Award for Excellence Finalist in Institutional Development.
ULI (Urban Land Institute) spoke with Ennead Partner Todd Schliemann FAIA about the project in “5 Minutes With The David H. Koch Center For Cancer Care Team”.
As a ULI NY Awards nominee, what makes you most proud of your project?
“I am most proud that the building is a healing place. From the advanced and compassionate care that takes place within, to the activation and repair of the site’s urban edge of the City, to the welcoming identity, massing and facades, to the addition of a renowned and respected health care facility in the neighborhood and the enhancement of the skyline of the East River frontage, this building has many healing aspects.”
What about New York inspires you?
"Its unbounded diversity. As an architect, the richness of its physical nature and its many cultures provides fertile ground to make meaningful architecture that expresses place-making, enriches its diverse cultures and brings a social and civic contribution to every project."

In concert with MSK Design, the building is a collaboration between Ennead, Perkins Eastman, and ICRAVE.
