So far, the beauty was like that an object reproduces the sublimity of the nature or reaches to the ideal aesthetic standard like the golden ratio. However, the contemporary art seems to keep distance from the previous beauty.
Modern architect, Adolf Loos, who said that ‘the decorations are the sins’, discussed about the value of the architectural aesthetic in tune with the time. But, whenever we see high-rise buildings composing the urban concrete jungle, they just generate individual aesthetic values of the sculptures and showy images like a nightclub, they actually have no concern about the intrinsic value requested by present day.

Zaans Medical Centre is the first lean hospital in the Netherlands. It is an efficient and compact building in which professional healthcare and a personal approach strengthen each other. Architecture, urbanism, landscape and interior are brought together in a coherent design. Clear routing, an abundance of daylight, and positive distractions contribute to an environment that does not feel like a hospital, but as a place that promotes wellbeing.

The project is a reflection on memory: the pass of time and the evolution of architecture…
The proposal is a way to intervention in a 19th century building … the traces of the past are engraved in the new buildings, like a memory of ancient geometries … It is an unfinished architecture that the time will end up composing in the place …

The new Dialysis Unit in Hospital of Carlos Haya is an enlargement that occupies the place of the old staff cafeteria, even part of the own Hospital, where annexed rooms, such as changing rooms, toilets, storage room, repair monitors, dirty and clean offices are located. The main idea of the project is to develop all the activity of dialysis in the most diaphanous area, developing four distinct care stays, minimum, intermediate, intensive and patients-rooms. Thus, a radial composition is achieved, which is not broken in any case, as the separations are made of glass, the composition of dialysis stations is marked by the lighting and composition of the false ceiling is achieved, all this results in an open space, very comfortable and aesthetically unique and striking space, playing with a minimal numberof materials, expensive as well, combined with a few colours, taking advantage of the natural light, with special glasses.

Glass double-skin façade renovation at the Brive-la-Gaillarde existing Hospital. This new structure provides a thermal and acustics improvement to the building and fire security external ailes for an eventual intervention. This esthetic solution is made with curtain walls with an horizontal modular organisation, with different types of glass decorations that provide more or less sun protection depending on the location of the glass tile.

The facility, which includes Jurong Community Hospital, provides seamless integration of care on a single site. Close management ensures integration at the hospitals’ infrastructure, administrative and clinical levels. The hospitals are designed to share service facilities such as digital imaging, pharmacy, catering, medical records, storage and training facilities.

The comprehension of a metropolitan scale is fundamental at the moment of thinking in an integral architectonical answer. More than solving a need for the expansion of the hospital, the project should commit to solve more of what it is requested, taking advantage of the good location of the intervention area. The project is located in a place in the city where two of the main avenues: 9th and 7th avenue almost connect. Our proposal looks forward to be a diagonal connector and work as a catalyzer for new flows, activities and human relationships.

The project is located at the entrance of the hospital compound of the city of Woldya, in the north east of Ethiopia.
A key decision of the project was to divide it in two areas that share the same entrance space: the functional maternity unit and the mothers’ waiting area, a new program born as a result of the sociological analysis of the site. This is a space where future mothers coming from rural areas can live in an environment where they can feel comfortable two weeks before they give birth.
