The Myeloma Institute at UAMS, founded in 1989 by a determined physician scientist and nurtured through the fusion of intellect, energy, and scientific inquiry, is the world leader in myeloma research and curative treatment. Ten thousand patients have come to the Myeloma Institute from every state in the U.S. and 50 countries.

After 22 years of phenomenal growth, the Myeloma Institute will

permanent, patientcentered home in the Winthrop P. Rockefeller

relocate into a

Cancer Institute at UAMS.


Major clinical, research, and administrative components will be housed together in close proximity to a vast array of medical and support services in the Cancer Institute.

The move is slated for

Summer 2012.


For maximum effect, Dr. Barlogie enlisted Bob Kohler, AIA, a long-term patient/architect, to collaborate with the main architectural team, providing the crucial patient perspective.

Together, they coined the term

“Archi-Therapy” & - Design Driven by Patient

Perspective

Rooted in

Reference and Function.

“Archi-Therapy” conveys the heart and soul of the institution through its physical form for the support of healing.


Physician Pods form the central hub of the visually dynamic “Archi-Therapy� clinic space.

Physician Pods: Create a striking image, evoking world-class,

cutting-edge treatment

Are irregular in shape, mirroring a myeloma cell,

yet providing a firm foundation for a sense of

stability and security

Form a semi-circular arc, enabling a unique

arrangement of small, intimate seating nooks

Maximize effective lighting for comfort and tranquility


You are invited to support the continued excellence of the Myeloma Institute and its novel

a patient centered focus was the overriding principle in designing all components of the Cancer Institute. The goal was to create a soothing, humanizing and healing

environment.� Hrand DuValian, AIA, Senior Architect, The Cromwell Firm Lead Architect for the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute
