Health and Social Welfare in Town

The topic of the task is to produce a solution for a healthcare and social welfare institution within the formed city fabric in Zagreb. The student chooses the task, one of two offered thematic wholes and the location. hematic wholes are: social purpose (homes for senior citizens offering a variety of care for the old and immobile, centres for temporary accommodation for chronically ill children) and for medical purposes (individual and group surgeries, healthcare centres and policlinics). Institutions offering care to the aging and immobile include a range from day hospitals to hospices. These kinds of buildings are often lacking in city centres, even though centrally based facilities are desirable for guardians as they enable constant contact between family members and the charge/patient; the environment is familiar, etc. Waiting lists for homes are longest for those in the centre (Klaićeva Street, Ibler Square). There is especially an increased need for hospice care due to reduced hospital treatment, which does not include the chronically or terminally ill. The topic of this workshop is a design project that is doubly complex; not only does it require
the planning and design of a technologically complex building, but it also means that it needs to be located in a built-up area with a cultural, historical layered city context.
