“Health is mainly the measure of each person’s ability to do or to become what they want to be”.
By René Dubos, Microbiologist, Pulitzer Prize, author of “So Human an Animal: How We Are Shaped by Surroundings and Events”, 1968.
The relationship between architecture and health becomes evident at the moment in which the first one defines and builds “healthy spaces”, that is, paraphrasing the appointment, insofar as they allow each one to form and become what they want to be.
This definition of health and optimization of healthy space conceptually guide the proposal.
The new Faculty of Medicine of Badajoz is a single exempt building whose pieces are interwoven by PATIOS and CIRCULATIONS. This MATRIX guarantees healthy spaces of relationship, where the academic and research life develops.
