While at CannonDesign, Andrew King acted as design principal for the CHUM, the largest construction project in North America. Covering two full city blocks, the CHUM is a twenty-two stories high, two billion dollar regional hospital with international teaching and research networks. Composed of five interconnected buildings, it creates integrated but identifiable spaces for hospital, clinical office, teaching and logistic components of the project, acting at the large urban scale, but also at the neighborhood and human level, as a place of healing. Located on the corner of two important streets in Montreal, Saint-Denis and René-Lévesque, it mends the city’s urban fabric, and acts as an important anchor for Montreal’s new healthcare district, the Quartier de la Santé. Its large public plaza creates a fulcrum for the CHUM system and an iconic architectural identity.
