Carlos Arnaiz releases plans for a hybrid hospital and trauma center in rural Baler, giving healthcare access to individuals from remote areas in the Philippines

 

“The Hospital will also offer patients a therapeutic presence of nature, as the luscious exterior landscape of Baler permeates the facility through a series of undulating canopies that create an architectural figure in an open field of green”

“As a prototype design, the hospital will be prefabricated and repeatable for other rural regions with similar health and trauma care needs. Its contextual design can be adapted to other environments through customized external presence and public spaces in response to specific local conditions.”
