Fu Jen Catholic University Hospital
Fu Jen Catholic University, formerly the Catholic University of Peking, is a private, co-educational university founded by the Holy See, located in New Taipei City, Taiwan.
The 98,000-square-meter (1,050,000-square-foot) facility is designed with 14 levels above grade and four levels below grade (including three parking levels). The hospital occupies an 18,000-square-meter site (4 ½ acres) on the edge of the existing university campus.
The sweeping, curved roof houses energy-efficient solar collector panels, which contribute to the building’s potential LEED Silver level energy efficiency rating. The building also incorporates green roof gardens, interior gardens within designated waiting areas, exterior sun shading devices and low-E insulated glass.
