The new Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton serves members of the military in a healing and calming environment – from the moment they arrive on the hospital’s campus to the moment they leave. A four-story parking garage, featuring Banker Wire metal fabric railings and partitions, helps establish this calming environment and creates a sense of tranquility for patients.

The recently inaugurated Subacute Hospital in Mollet del Vallès is an example of how a hospital constructed in the 1950s and 60s, which had fallen into disuse, can be successfully recycled to meet the current and future challenges emerging in healthcare. The renovation project was based on simple and effective interventions that were practical as well as functional, resulting in a low-cost, energy-efficient hospital that re-assumes an active role in the day-to-day life of the city.

The new ETH building is conceived as an efficient and flexible architectural device, providing an answer to the multiple aspects shaping its complex environment.
On the one hand, the landscape and the urban quality of the public spaces around the building condition the building’s insertion. The respect of the historical urban fabric, in particular the Heritage garden in the south facade of the site, is essential as it constitutes an important area of the city urban fabric throughout the centuries. At the same time, all the classed trees in the site will be preserved.

Due to its location, the new General Services Building of the Cruces Hospital takes a predominant position from the highway and acquires a strong importance in the surroundings. The building is provided with symbolic value and reflects its activity by means of the façade. The façade is generated by a pattern of proteins, as it might be the image associated to the medical vanguard and research.

1. The creation of human-scale building through the unification of architecture and landscape
Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital, founded by Canadian Missionary Dr. Macklin, is located in the downtown center of Nanjing city. It is one of the most renowned hospitals in China.The earlier expansions of the hospital was driven by the development of modern medical technology as well as the increasing municipal population. Despite the remarkable scales, most of these early expansions are hardly more than simple and urgent addition and extension of existing function to meet the rapidly increasing need for medical service. As a result, the functional layout of many floors are not well organized and streamlined for the operation of the hospital as a whole. For instance, the existing outpatient department is on the east side of Zhongshan Rd, connected with the main buildings of the hospital, which is on the west side, only through a narrow underground passageway, which makes extra inconvenience to both patients and staffs.

The building structures itself around an orientation axis East – West and acts as a dividing line between the most external zones and the most internal ones. (Technical Block)
This axis contains two circulation lines separated by a fringe in which are located the vertical elevators nucleus (restricted area) and stairways in such a way that the nucleus situated to the North joins across the medical consults zone and bureaus ( half public controlled access) and the rear one that joins the assistance areas of the technical block (restricted area).
