TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The University of Arizona in Tucson has announced plans to build a $20 million facility for its integrative medicine center.

The Arizona Daily Star reported the new Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine building looks to provide a physical environment that supports the evidence-based philosophy of integrative medicine.

School officials say the 34,000-square-foot (3,159-square-meter) building would be located north of East Speedway Boulevard on the northeast end of the Tucson campus.

Officials say the project could begin construction by 2021 after going through a design phase.

Officials say construction would be funded through gifts and donations.

The building is named after a renowned health and wellness guru Andrew Weil, known for his complementing methods with an emphasis on natural therapies, spirituality and the mind-body connection.
