Shaping a new age of patient care is at the heart of this design, with the emphasis of the role of architecture & nature in promoting healing environments in the medical tourism industry.The design aims to blur the boundaries between building & nature by integrating the building into the terrain of the site via curvilinear masses and open spaces, thereby breaking away from the rigid architectural language of the old-paradigm hospital.The development consists of a Medical Center,Condotel & Multipurpose Hall connected via a link bridge with an integrated hydroponics system as a spinal axis.
