The Bridge Hospital project (Siltasairaala) designed by the Finnish-French consortium Team Integrated has been chosen to the Time Space Existence exhibition in Venice. The innovative Finnish hospital hospital architecture is being presented in Palazzo Bembo through photographs and rendered images.
The state-of-the-art Bridge Hospital enhances the Helsinki Meilahti hospital campus’sconnection with the surrounding city structure, frames a central ‘entrance square’ to the hospital campus, and on the other hand forms the edge of the hospital campus towards the Seurasaarenselkä bay and surrounding landscape. Natural light and art were important aspects in the interior healing spaces of the hospital. A street connection was provided through the hospital, hence the name ‘Bridge Hospital’.
The consortium Team Integrated was responsible for the design of the hospital, following their success in an international invitational competition in 2015. Their prize-winning entry was based on the original urban design solution made by Harris-Kjisik Architects, who were also one of the offices forming the Team integrated. The other offices were AW2 Architects – part of AINS Group, B&M Architects and Brunet Saunier Architecture from France.
The Time Space Existence exhibition is organised by European Cultural Centre Italy, together with OpenSpace Venice ETS organization. The exhibition features completed and ongoing projects, innovative proposals, and utopian dreams of architectural expressions. The exhibition is being held simultaneously with the Venice Architectural Biennale and is open from May 20 until November 26, 2023.
