with Livio Vacchini
The project for the construction of a new hospital near Venice interprets an architecture of the private, "la maison de l'homme" (Le Corbusier on his hospital for Venice). For this reason, it takes on the height of the surrounding agglomeration. It consists of individual houses that are closely related to each other. They are modularly expandable. The idea of these houses is natural light, the rooms in the light. The unity is given by the overall concept, by the constant height, by the natural light present everywhere, by the consistency of the materials and by the constructive module.
The three areas of reception/administration, nursing wards and examination/treatment are clearly legible and distinguishable. This hospital is one of the many towns that make up the Veneto and is connected to them by the transport networks: Paths, roads, railway lines.
