Alfredo De Vido Architects' new hospital designed to withstand forces of nature 

The Hospital for Haiti has been designed using an assembly / prefab system which emphasises effectiveness and construction efficiency. The Hospital for Haiti was planned in the aftermath of the recent earthquake and seismic considerations were a prime factor in the design which places the entire building on base isolators and enables it to withstand strong seismic stresses.

This design combines prefabricated modular patient rooms, complete with mechanical system and finishes, with vertical risers located within concrete cores. All structural support, as well as elevators and stairs are placed within these concrete cores. The prefabricated exterior walls are integrated and installed with the room modules. Wall and window assemblies are designed to achieve the highest international standards for energy conservation.
