Call for Entries: Quarantine Facility Design for Temporary Healthcare Facility
We are living in uncertain times and as citizens of a developing economy, we are posed with an additional challenge of using our resources sparingly so as to ensure minimum impact on our economy.
A vaccine or a permanent solution to the situation may take years to develop. To aid the government’s effort, the Architecture fraternity must come up with cost-effective solutions for quarantine facilities that are in compliance with social distancing norms.
In this competition, we ask you to come up with visionary concepts for an isolation ward in a quarantine facility, to help subdue the effects of the outbreak on existing infrastructure. To slow down the spread of the virus, we need to carry out contact tracing and widespread testing. The lockdown issued by the government while beneﬁcial has resulted in migration and detention of people. Hence, we need facilities with individual isolation cells to monitor suspected victims who might have been exposed to the virus.
