ALBERT DE PINEDA AT THE 8H CONGRESS IN CHILE
The main theme of this eighth congress is “Projecting Challenges”, with the idea of proposing and discussing challenges and policies in the Chilean hospital infrastructure.
With the conference The Hospital and the City, Albert de Pineda emphasized Pinearq’s involvement in the urban development of the cities where they have built hospital centres in recent years. Through the presentation of several projects, Pinearq’s founder sought to answer three key questions, in line with the company spirit: How does architecture impact society? How does architecture interact with the environment? What does architecture represent for medicine?
This presentation implicitly bears the big issue that moves the future of healthcare architecture: what kind of healthcare centres we are designing considering that healing is a social activity that includes the city, that the hospital model is aimed at prevention, and that advances in technological media are increasingly close.
