Session Description

In partnership with Mission:318, BSA LifeStructures held an internal master planning competition to create innovative planning solutions for Yendi Municipal Hospital in Yendi, Ghana. Four interdisciplinary professionals were challenged with adapting modern healthcare design to this location with special consideration for cultural context, local materials, access to power and water, and more. Ultimately, these teams were combined midway through the planning effort in order to leverage the best ideas from each team. This session will explore these innovative ideas, beginning with a current state analysis, through the development of a future state plan.
