The hospital areas were isolated from the surroundings because of the infectious diseases. The future of the area starts by tearing down the massive walls. Better traffic connections and mixing various functions attracts users to the new pilot lohas (lifestyle of health and sustainability) city hospital. Lowering the border between hospital and outside world enables social contacts between patients and other people. We did the competition together with Sasu Hälikkä, specialist of healthcare design.
