The AGORA Cancer Research Center in Lausanne was realized in 2018 and has since then served as oncological science center of the 21st century. On the outer façade, a continuous cover forms around the entire building. Thanks to the permeable cell structure, which can be seen in detail, the building's interior is individually protected from the incident sun in every orientation, while at the same time allowing visual transparency to the outside.
