Workshop 2018: An Urban Hospital in Poblenou
Professors: Mario Corea, Joan Llongueras, Lidia Planas
Assistant: Mauro Forchino
The site for the hospital is located in the Poblenou neighborhood of Barcelona, between Avinguda Diagonal, a very connected and fully consolidated area, and Pere IV street, which is a less privileged neighborhood with smaller buildings. The program specified a hospital of medium complexity of approximately 20,000 m2 and 100 beds. In addition to resolving the technical issues, the project brief called for addressing the urban conditions and issues related to public space due to its location in a unique part of the city, which after many years of decline, is undergoing a major transformation.
