Albuquerque - New Mexico, Built Structure, Hospital, Medical Building, New Mexico
Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - June 29, 2011: Ultramodern architectural glass, stone and steel building of the University of New Mexico Cancer Center. The design of the building was heavily influenced by New Mexico’s diverse cultures. Because a strong connection to the Earth is central to Native American beliefs, wood, stone and other natural elements are visible throughout the facility. New Mexican plants believed to have healing properties inspired the color schemes, and a roof-to-ground light chimney floods each floor with sunlight.
