Can architecture successfully combine education with healthcare?

This is a challenging concept developed by the Oslo Cancer Cluster. A combination of teaching, laboratory facilities and commercial offices with a common link to health and cancer research. A high school is located in the first two floors of the building with the remainder being dedicated to specialist office space. The exterior has been designed by Dark and Arkitektpartner with Link Arkitektur responsible for the interior design. Can you spot the subtle colour change in the window recesses? A nice touch from the designers!
