CELLS was born out of the experience that FTA has developed in the field of the design of social and healthcare facilities; this temporary installation aimed to synthesize the effects of the evolution of the world of healthcare and make them perceptible by immersing the visitor in a sensory experience.
The installation consists of two glass structures or “cells” with antithetical formal characteristics, which establish a visual dialogue by placing themselves at opposite corners of the courtyard. They represent the two complementary spirits of the healthcare of the future: on one hand, the focus on transforming the hospital into a domestic space, on the other hand, the advent of the “virtual healthcare” and consequent “dehospitalization”.
The common denominator of each cell is the visitor’s barycentric position: in the healthcare of the future, the need to keep man at the center is fundamental.
