New Clinics In Haiti Use Functional Architecture To Help TB, Cholera Patients

New York Times: In Haiti, Battling Disease With Open-Air Clinics
“…Haiti — a broken country if there ever was one — now has two new clinics, open-air, modest in size and cost, designed to tackle diseases that can be as insidious and deadly as Ebola, but are also more common: cholera and tuberculosis. … Instead of constructing hermetic shields in the form of airtight, inflexible hospital buildings, the architects took advantage of Haiti’s Caribbean environment, exploiting island cross breezes to heal patients and aid caregivers…” (Kimmelman, 12/28).
