The Danish Centre for Proton Therapy, to be located in Central Denmark Region, has received the WAN Future Projects Healthcare Award for its innovative concept.

The new cancer center will be located at The New University Hospital in Aarhus, Central Denmark Region, and will be the first of its kind in Denmark. It is the most advanced cancer radiotherapy center to date, hosting some of the most advanced and exclusive equipment for cancer treatment. 

The WAN (World Architecture News) Future Projects Healthcare Award is a renowned award given to healthcare projects from around the world. Here, the Danish project faced hard competition in the final, with five other designs also being worthy of the trophy. However, the Danish Centre for Proton Therapy won for its simplicity in design in spite of its massively complex function. The center will have walls up to four meters thick and contain 14,000 cubic meters of concrete.

The new cancer center was designed by LINK arkitektur.
