Project 01: Refugee Clinic
After finishing on the site plan of the refugee camp, we each choose a building and designed it to be functional and temporary. I chose to design a health clinic for vaccinations, minor injuries, health checkups, and some therapy.
As I began to work on this, I already had a few ideas in mind from working on the entire camp. I wanted it to seem open and accessible, while keeping it protected from the elements and secure. The medical supplies stored inside are huge security concerns, and so I struggled with that.
In the end, I kept my design simple. I used canvas to cover and insulate the clinic, and used a net to keep bugs out. Inside, I had two hallways run through, and I did not use actual doors; instead I had the idea to use something like a tent curtain to maximize the flow of the building.
