A well-connected, integrated, flexible, expandable hospital facility blended in the landscape. It is bridging the current development to future urbanization. A medical city within a developing city, offering the landscape as a landmark.  The site’s physical conditions, place the new building for the pediatric hospital in a tight spot. The choice is either to evolve in vertical, and by doing so, disrupt the low scale-built environment and the green farmlands and hills (already endangered by the construction of the metropolitan belt), or to expand in horizontal, and therefore increase land occupation and circulation lengths.
