Healing the Area in Between

Part 1 Project 2021

The area in between refers to the rural areas on the highway connecting two of the most urbanized areas in Lebanon, Beirut and Saida. By the end of the 20th century, urbanization rates kept increasing, overpopulation led people to inhibit the area in between. Today, these rural areas became occupied with more than 50,000 residents suffering from shortage of medical services. Traffic studies have shown that 38% of all vehicular accidents in Lebanon are those on this connecting highway and the victims’ lives of these accidents are threatened by the time they reach the nearest hospital. In order to solve this humanitarian catastrophe and in response to the Covid-19 Pandemic, a medical complex will be introduced in order to sustain and heal the area in between assuring the wellbeing of its occupants through the latest adaptable and sustainable healthcare strategies. A general hospital with nine different departments interconnected to a quarantine facility that both responds to pandemics and act as an extension when needed. A research hub for medical research and lab experimentations to stay updated on all health concerns. The whole complex operates through a series of interlinked functions adapting to all conditions and healing whoever’s in need.
