Shenzhen Infectious Disease Hospital – China

The employees of TRO Jung|Brannen’s Memphis office, now brg3s, participated in the design of a 70,000 square meter specialty hospital for infectious diseases in Shenzhen, China.

The campus contains a linear spine with a series of north-south finger-shaped buildings curving to capture sunlight and channel the prevailing southeastern winds. Although the buildings have internal mechanical systems to halt the spread of infections, similar to those in U.S. hospitals, campus organization remains consistent with culturally understood arrangements of locating infectious patients downwind. This arrangement additionally offers them the natural healing power of sunlight and serene garden views.

Patient and administrative services comprise three areas: infectious (inpatient buildings for liver and hepatitis, viruses, tuberculosis, and severe respiratory diseases), semi-infectious (outpatient clinics and research), and non-infectious (administration offices and residential). In the infectious and semi-infectious buildings, floors are divided into zones with separate corridors, preventing cross contamination between patients and staff and separating the public from patients and staff.

TRO Jung|Brannen received a national AIA Healthcare Honor Award in the “Unbuilt” category for this project.
