Weird shapes are typically at odds with strict programming requirements and really expensive construction. At most, they tend to compensate with size. 

Anyway... you could do your own research, but I guess I'd mention https://www.cannondesign.com/o...Pretty oddly shaped for a healthcare facility, and not that large. Kind of the least interesting part of the design if you know anything about linear accelerator space planning though.

Thank you so much! it really helps. And for the context, the assignment is to make a model making of a healthcare facility with the area of the base 20×20, its quite small and to make a hospital that are commonly huge will be really challenging. By the way I'm just starting my first year :)) Thanks once again!

Maggie Center,they have around 30 facilities which are designed by different collaboration between architect and landscape architect. These small facilities are designed for patient with cancer. Every project has a unique or innovative point.

To be clear, those are care centres and it looks like the starchitect buildings are a means of soliciting donations because they are largely privately funded. Not to dismiss its need or purpose but it operates differently than a regular run of the mill hospital.

thanks for the info! I think its still eligible for my assignment since the typology of the building considered health landscape

NBBJ had a couple projects they recently showed on their IG feed that might be interesting to you. Your post made me think of the Yellowhawk Tribal Health Center which takes on a different shape where the building is formed to create a small central courtyard. I also noticed their post showing the Meridian Center for Health. It looks to have a more typical formal layout though it could create a very nice looking model.

I used to work for HDR in their German offices, we have some pretty cool healthcare projects.
