Talk OMA / Reinier de Graaf


'The Hospital of the Future' is a visual manifesto that questions the prevailing conventions in the field of healthcare design, not only in terms of how hospitals are built but also why they are built the way they are built. The work emerges from a research project led by Reinier de Graaf and his team at the renowned architectural office OMA. The film examines the role that disease has played in shaping cities and concludes with a speculative exploration into the future of healthcare design. The film is meant to stimulate a discussion about how to build viable cities for health and care.
