Uganda Women's and Children's Clinic

Uganda, Africa

This medical campus in rural Uganda will provide lab spaces, maternity wards, patient rooms, emergency services, optometry, dental, doctor housing, and a physician training center targeting maternal and infant care. A chapel anchors the patient care buildings which cascade down the site, with interstitial spaces programmed to facilitate connection and wellness. The use of local materials and typologies creates an architecture that is uniquely African and deeply rooted in place, community, and making; passive solar design strategies such as a floating roof, solar chimneys, and strategic dogtrots will allow the net-zero equatorial campus to function without HVAC.
