Procedure
Concurso: 1er. premio

We chose a building where the shape-function relationship is immediate. On the ground floor, parallel blocks stands out, which host the outpatient service, with immediate access for the patients. On the first floor, a transversal construction brings together the intensive care services in a functional way. This shape-function relationship gives us, in a natural way, two circulation axes (clinical and outpatient), one at each end.
