Al Daayan Health District Masterplan, Qatar

OMA and Squint/Opera’s Al Daayan Health District Masterplan is a prototype for a low-rise hospital that explores the potential of modularity, prefabrication, and automation in relation to the rapid changes occurring in medical science.

Designed by OMA together with BuroHappold, the prototype is the result of the research for the Al Daayan Health District Masterplan, commissioned by Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC).

The project consists of a modular structure of two-story high units, incorporating gardens where nature can be enjoyed by patients and staff. The modules can be reconfigured and expanded with minimal disruption to ongoing care procedures, significantly lowering the cost of adapting the facility in the future.

3D-printing allows for endless variations in the design of the facades, reintroducing ornament into an architectural typology usually characterized by austerity. A high-tech farm that supplies food and medicinal plants, a dedicated logistics center and a solar farm enable the hospital to function autonomously.
