Abstract [en]

This project deals with architecture for people in need in extreme conditions. Explicitly, it addresses the issue of groups of people being in immediate need of medical attention due to unpredictable or outdrawn events - such as disasters or crises. The same events are preventing them from getting the healthcare they need, on one hand, by affecting their bodies and minds, and on the other hand by affecting the surroundings and the built environment. As a consequence, a complex medical and logistical issue is created where the logic is reversed: instead of transporting the casualties to facilities for treatment – the medical facilities and their staff have to be transported to the affected site. How can good design play a role in this kind of relief? This project presents a new strategy and a architectural response for deploying medical relief to areas of disaster or crisis.

Abstract [sv]

Det här projektet handlar om arkitektur för människor i nöd. Det belyser problemet där stora grupper av människor är i direkt behov av sjukvård på grund av plötsliga eller utdragna händelser, så som katastrofer eller kriser. Samma händelser begränsar dessa människors mobilitet, dels genom att påverka kropp och själ, men också genom att påverka omgivningen och den byggda miljön. Som en konsekvens skapas ett komplext medicinskt och logisitiskt problem där logiken är omvänd: Istället för att transportera de drabbade till sjukhus för vård måste sjukvården och dess personal förflyttas till den drabbade platsen. Hur kan god design bidra vid den här typen av humanitär hjälp? Det här projektet presenterar en ny strategi och ett arkitektoniskt svar för installation av medicinska funktioner i områden drabbade av katastrofer och kriser.
