Hospitaalbouw in Zimbabwe

Author

Abstract

Designing a hospital means making a study of all the influencing parameters of the form and functional organisation. The thoroughness of this process will determine the quality of the design itself. This article contains a distilation of such a process. By making such a study I hoped to come to a valid conclusion - design - different from the health-factories that are normally implanted in developing countries. This, by taking in account not only the health carefacility onitself - with which we are quite familiar - but also the specific human values of the indegenious population.

KEYWORDS : architectural expression, basic health care, district-hospital, human architectural approach
