Chinese Translation 项目中文介绍 (PDF, 1.1MB)

A new destination dedicated to the health and healing of China's children will soon appear in the Yangtze Delta Region. The concept for the design of Suzhou Children's Hospital was inspired by the human body's natural way of growing and healing: the process of mitosis, or cell division. The hospital's form mimics the telophase of cell division, when the most complex, flexible, efficient, and routine processes occur. This creates an overall building shape that is flexible and efficient, as well as conducive to the most complex and routine patient care activities, healthcare research and educational opportunities. Natural light and ventilation play significant roles in achieving a three-star sustainability score, China's highest. The project was designed in association with JH Design and Consulting, Inc. (Shanghai) and Suzhou Planning and Design Research Institute Co., LTD.
