Epidemic Babel: Healthcare Emergency Skyscraper
Designed by Chinese architects D Lee, Gavin Shen, Weiyuan Xu, and Xinhao Yuan, they took the first prize in the competition. This design responds to the coronavirus pandemic that outbreaks this year.
Facing the current situation, this healthcare skyscraper is inspired by the purpose of relieving the burden of the existing healthcare resource. The main structure of this high-rise hospital is a steel frame with several functional boxes that can be easily installed to the main building with a very small footprint. Besides, these boxes can be assembled in five days in response to sudden outbreaks of contagious disease. It meets the demand of a temporal hospital, that is, simple construction and rapid response.
The project corresponds to the aim of the annual award that is to encourage visionary ideas that challenge the way we understand vertical architecture and its relationship with the natural and built environments through the novel use of technology, materials, programs, aesthetics, and spatial organizations.
