Theoretical: By adapting a building for both rapid and future response, a more efficient hospital system can be maintained which can afford to provide patients the best opportunity for care in the present as well as the future.
Scope: This 200 bed general hospital will facilitate patients of all ages and specialize in pediatrics and OB-GYN. This new hospital will help with the overflow of patients from the existing hospital in Cameron, TX and accommodate for the services that the current hospital lacks.
Thesis: A study of how adaptability, both rapid and future, can be integrated and enforced in building design based around interactions between building and site, people and site and people and building.
