The MVSA design team, responsible for the design of the exterior and interior of the new Haga Hospital in The Hague, is part of the speakers program Building the Future of Health, a large international conference about urban planning, architecture and public health.
The highly topical conference will take place from 1 to 4 June 2016 in Groningen. MVSA will highlight the steps taken within the design process and explain the concept and implementation of the design for the new building of the Juliana Childrenâ€™s Hospital and the Mother & Child Centre Operation Complex in the Haga Hospital. We are honoured to give the lecture in good company of the Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne (Australia) by Billard Leece Partnership and Bates Smart Architects and Childrenâ€™s Hearth clinic in Innsbruck (Austria) by Nickl-Weller Partner.
The organization of Building the Future of Health explains the occasion for organizing the event on their website as follows:
â€śCan the built environment help us stay healthy for longer? Can it inspire us to exercise more? How can we provide for clean water and air? What will our future hospitals look like? Does linking healthy lifestyle and good nutrition to well-designed cities offer a possible cure for Western diseases like obesity and diabetes? And moreover: how can architects and urban planners play a vital role in solving these issues? These questions â€“ and many more â€“ will take centre stage at the international conference Building the Future of Health. Building the Future of Health revitalizes the once fertile coalition between urban planning, architecture and public health. In doing so, it underlines the great importance of healthy, well-designed cities in an ageing world.â€ť
