Four U-shaped buildings are grouped around a core so as to minimize circulation paths between the different functional areas and maximize transparency and visual contact with the outside. The result is a hospital suffused in light, where visual contact between the different functional areas allows for intuitive orientation and clarity. From the central hall, one easily recognizes the circulation paths throughout the building. The main entrance, drop-off zone for immobile patients, and the diagonally opposing emergency drive-up all lead to the building center. Here at the intersection of all paths, the central coordination desk sends patients to the appropriate functional area while the concierge at the entrance lobby directs visitors to the elevators situated in front of the coordination desk.
