A hos­pi­tal-model for Sene­gal

Domus - - NEWS -

Win­ner of the con­test is­sued by the Josef and Anni Al­bers Foun­da­tion, Manuel Herz has en­larged the hos­pi­tal in the coun­try­side of Tam­aba­counda, Sene­gal, which each year as­sists 20,000 pa­tients. His de­sign “aims to be­come a model and new par­a­digm for med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions in Sene­gal and for the African con­ti­nent as a whole,” says the Swiss ar­chi­tect. The new build­ing will be con­nected to the ex­ist­ing one by a cov­ered walk­way and will host a pae­di­atrics/ma­ter­nity ward, adding two out­door spa­ces to al­low the rel­a­tives of pa­tients to rest peace­fully. www.al­bers­foun­da­tion.org
