Community Hospital @ Yishun


Singapore is seeking to care for one of Asia’s fastest-aging populations; and the Community Hospital @ Yishun aims to serve it with the best in “slow medicine,” which harnesses technology without being driven by it. Collaborating with HDR, Gensler’s design competition solution envisioned a building with spatial organization connecting patient need to hospital services. State-of-the-art medicine would be complemented by universal access to experience-rich amenities, educational resources and gardens. Multiple sustainable solutions would be employed, including a naturally ventilated skin that draws in prevailing winds, daylight, and the sounds and smells of the region.
