Dear Juliana Silva Tavares, hope you well.
firstly, thanks for your efforts in the project but here is some main points should be study carefully at in hospital project.
as you mention the project is hospital not health dispenser. so it should contain accommodation tower for long term residence patients, and the efficiency as well as the rank of the hospital depends on the "count of bed" or the Patient capacity for accommodation. I'm not notice rooms for accommodation in your project.
on the other hand, hospital contain many main circulation should be found clearly in the plans and in the mass.
1)circulation for visitors; " elevators, stairs, and escape staircase"
2) circulation for patients: " special elevators, and sanitized lanes and corridors"
3) circulation for medical crew: " elevators, special lanes from their room to surgical room"
4) circulation for services: " elevators for workers or service crew, stairs, elevators for Operations waste which we call " Dirty corridor", gain for laundry, etc.
these circulations very important to separate the many different functional from others.
as well as, the administration section prefer to be small section and placed in the ground in order not to cross with other hospital activities which should be clean and sanitized.
also I'm not notice the medical surgery section in your project.
i hope, help you with these points to take it into consider in the next times
wish you all the best, and ready for any other questions.
Dear Maram Abbas, thank you very much for your feedback, I'll be taking it to my professor and coordinator because we use the term hospital, but in fact we built an oncology clinic for the program we received. In fact, in hospitals, rooms and all these separate circulations are necessary, but in our program, rooms weren't necessary since we wouldn't have hospitalization or a long stay in the place and the circulation I only have separates the service/employees with the social/patient precisely because it is a clinical program.
Anyway, thank you very much for the feedback, I am happy to receive these points and see how the terms we use make a big difference... I'll really take it to my professor and course coordination so that we can use the right term when designing.
The idea was to build an oncology hospital in the central area of Rio de Janeiro that would seek to deconstruct the social imaginary that we have when we talk about a hospital. In addition, it brought an extensive public and green square, considering that we don't have this in surroundings and this area serves for rest, contemplation and inspiration both for the hospital public and for other citizens who pass through this central area and work around.
The project consists of a single building that contains outpatient areas, diagnosis and therapy, pharmacy, teaching and research, logistical support and administrative support. So, we have offices, immunization rooms, collection box, chemotherapy application, nursing station, classrooms and others.
The building consists of a metallic structure, conventional brick walls and drywall, façade solutions with vertical organic wooden louvers and green walls and aluminum and wooden frames.
