MATERNITY AND CHILDREN HOSPITAL FOR CHINA’S TIANJIN ECO-CITY
Ten years ago, the governments of China and Singapore united to project and build a model city, scalable and replicable, respectful of the environment and socially balanced. The new Eco-City is being built for 350,000 inhabitants, in a large free space in the coastal area of Tianjin, 40 kilometers from the city centre. The new Maternity and Children Hospital will have 55,000 m2 and 375 beds.
The building is a platform in which the main services are organized (such as day hospitals, emergency room and other services), and a rectangular tower that houses the hospitalization rooms. The building is set back to give way to a large park that goes into the platform. The tower takes advantage of the natural light and the distant views.
