Emergency Pediatric Clinic, Darfur This article was originally published in Domus 949/July 2011 In the experience of Emergency, creating a hospital is something more than constructing a functional building. It is the designing of a place suited to human reconstruction. We work in zones torn by war or afflicted by dire poverty.

Africa is an opportunity, because through all its countless contradictions and backwardness it maintains a strong link with the reality and memory of the past. The hospital, which is part of the regional paediatric and cardiac surgery programme, operates in symbiosis with the Salam Cardiac Surgery Centre in Khartoum (published in Domus 912, 03/2008). Interior of the hospital.

The project, a retirement community for Catholic priests, (who are excluded from the traditional, family based, model of elder care in Cote D’Ivoire), will be the first age-valued community on the African continent. This simplistic approach to housing will create an environment which is well-suited for the users-where the elderly will be safe and comfortable, and continue to maintain a meaningful and healthy lifestyle.
