Site Visit: Hospital del Mar

Third week: Three site visits in one morning. Team LA(H)B went down to the seaside to visit the Hospital del Mar, the Barcelona Biomedical Research Lab and the Faculty of Medicine, all by the studio PINEARQ. Guided by architect Raúl García the students learned how the functional plan defines a project and its architectural design. They saw first-hand how concepts like ceiling height, proportions, lighting and ventilation define how a space is perceived by the users.
