The design is based on circles. The dimensions of it are in a certain ratio to each other, coming from a system as developed by the Benedictine monk Dom Hans van der Laan (1904-1991). The clear simplicity of the design emphasizes the motto, a text by the cellist and composer Pau Casals, which seems to fit with exceptional performances, dedication and talent. Science, healthcare and education are three components of a university medical center. In that context, the text takes on an additional meaning. The design is made in different materials: crystal, bronze and porcelain. Thus, the design emphasizes the human uniqueness, and each version has a completely own expression.
