The brief for this project was to define a new surgical building in a pre-existing hospital, including the connections between the new building and extant spaces. The new building comprises a surgical section, an intensive care unit, a sterilisation area, emergencies halls, classrooms, laundry and storage areas, personnel areas, as well as a whole series of auxiliary spaces required for the aforementioned uses. Taking a quasi scientific approach, the proposal was addressed as a search for a logical and precise geometric system which would respond to a highly complex specific functional problem determined by the centralisation and optimisation of resources, control, segregation and agility in flows (of both personnel and materials) and adaptability. The order, rationality, centrality and isotropy implicit in the radial layout makes it the optimum solution to the problem, building around it a spatial structure that effectively adapts to the required functioning. The form of the resulting volume, besides resolving the insertion of the new building by means of “an object within an object” with the pre-existing building, is also associated with organic forms such as the mass of trees surrounding the building or cellular structures, natural organisms which also speak to the founding purpose of the building: to its scientific and vital vocation.
