City of Hope Kaplan Family Pavilion

Duarte, California

Client: City of Hope

Architect/AHBE Client: Belzberg Architects

AHBE's work with City of Hope includes this new museum located in the heart of the Duarte campus. The museum serves as an exhibition space, event space, and an outdoor pavilion. An existing Camphor tree is central to the proposed design, unifying an off-axis promenade to the gridline of the campus. The newly joined pedestrian way accentuates the museum's tree canopy feature. The project provides an interstitial outdoor room for connection, healing, and meditation.
