Healthcare as an instrument

Since the advent of modern hospitals, healthcare has been confined to fixed institutional space that lacks flexibility. The thesis aims to rethink the hospital and focus on healthcare delivery by creating mobile healthcare spaces that can be assembled on demand.

Using inflatable architecture, the project conceives healthcare as a prosthetic extension of a residential space that functions not only for treatment and recovery but also quarantine.
