Winter 2015 Design Quarterly

Exploring trends in Proton Beam Therapy Center design

The new VOA Design Quarterly is now available on the VOA blog and as a printable PDF download. The Winter 2015 edition of the publication focuses on trends in Proton Beam Therapy Center design. It features five articles authored by VOA experts in proton therapy center design: John Jessen, AIA, NCARB, IIDA, Paula S. Williams, AIA and Franck Le Bousse, DPLG. In this edition, these architects explore trends affecting proton therapy center design including the scalability of technology, future treatment methods, integrated project delivery of proton centers, evolving treatment and the integrated model for deploying proton therapy.

VOA is recognized worldwide as the leader in the design of proton therapy beam centers. One of only three U.S. architecture firms to have designed a built and operational proton therapy center in the U.S. in the past two decades, VOA’s team of experts are experienced in responding to the unique demands and special requirements involved in the design of these projects.

Thinking big, building small
Technological advances are making proton therapy centers more scalable than ever.

An Evolving Treatment, Adapting Design
Technological innovations and practical experience are changing the way proton therapy is practiced.

Carbon, the next wave?
Lessons from Proton Therapy Center Design will come in handy when this promising particle beam technology becomes more widely available.

Building Smart
Design features enhancing patient experience, throughput and cost savings in tomorrow’s proton therapy centers.

Delivering Proton
The collaborative process in IPD helps control costs and schedule while allowing us to focus on designing for the patient experience.

Embracing an Integrated Model
Hospitals and cancer centers add proton therapy to their mix.

John Jessen, AIA, NCARB, IIDA, Paula S. Williams, AIA and Franck Le Bousse, DPLG are available for interviews. For more information and hi-res images, contact: Theresa Gorman,
