The circle is the most common and
universal sign found in all cultures. It is the symbol of life. It is the
perfect symbol of completeness and eternity, it is a pure form, yet life isn’t
perfect, which is why we chose the ellipse, a distorted form of the circle.
The ellipse is the representation
of all imperfectability, and infection. The stratification of the ellipses
helps animate the project vertically and bring it back to life. The transition
which consists of a band of steel that runs around the building starts from the
Ground Floor and ends at the Sixth Floor. This reflects the transcendences of
life. The activities/functions end at the sixth floor where the royal suites
are located and a beautiful garden resembling paradise.
Usually hospital designs are very
static; we at DAZ ARCHITECTS have decided to take a new approach: since the
hospital’s main purpose is to maintain life, we also tried to bring life to our
hospital by trying to rectify the imperfections.
