Kaiser Permanente, a national leader in green building and sustainable hospital design, named both Aditazz and Mazzetti Nash Lipsey Burch with Perkins+Will as winners in its international Small Hospital, Big Idea competition. This month's presentation of the AIA|LA Committee will focus on this competition outlining both process and results.
The Aditazz and M+NLB/ Perkins+Will teams were selected by a design jury for their small hospital designs that:
- Create spaces to inspire human-to-human connection and collaboration
- Include civic spaces that blur the boundaries between the community and the traditional hospital setting
- Bring nature inside with light-wells and rooms that are oriented around a large central courtyard, building on research that shows a positive correlation between exposure to nature and healing
- Move beyond carbon neutrality to restore ecosystems and biodiversity, and improve the conditions for community health
- Make use of a unique tool that applies silicon-chip technology to the building and design process, enabling designers and frontline professionals to quickly explore an almost unlimited number of operational and space scenarios
- The teams were selected after an 11-month evaluation process when the three finalists presented their designs for a small, net-zero-energy hospital that uses new technology to improve health care delivery and outcomes
