HEALTHCARE


Go-ahead for Medical Architecture’s fracture clinic at Princess Alexandra


Medical Architecture has secured planning consent for a new Fracture Clinic at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow. The new facility will enable the orthopaedic department to expand the range of services provided by the hospital. Medical Architecture co-designed the layout with clinic consultants who preferred consult and exam rooms laid out in a ‘butterfly’ configuration, with an exam room either side of a single consultation room. “This arrangement


provides an efficient modern clinical environment to support excellent NHS acute services,” said the architects. Bob Wills, director at Medical Architecture commented, “This modest project illustrates how good planning, architecture and technical design can deliver facilities which expand clinical capacity and improve operational efficiency in a complex hospital setting. Patients and staff will benefit from this new purposeful, accessible and


well-ordered building.” Rose Frawley, senior technologist at Medical Architecture said, “Forging a new relationship with the Princess Alexandra Hospital Trust, we have worked closely with clinicians aiming to provide a new standard of excellence for the hospital. By restoring the Fracture Clinic services to Harlow, a bright, therapeutic new environment has been developed with an emphasis on quality and efficiency through good design.”


BOOK Projects and Their Consequences


Jesse Reiser and Nanako Umemoto are the founders and principals of New York practice RUR Architecture. Their new lavishly-produced hardback volume ‘Projects and Their Consequences,’ published by Princeton Architectural Press is described as a “genre-blending monograph presenting 30 years of the firm’s work. The 35-page, fully illustrated tome is,


say the publishers, “autobiographical, technical, prophetic and meditative.” The book certainly does present a “unique view of the intersections of the visionary, the speculative and the practical work of architecture and its relationship to art and culture.” A total of 15 key projects are presented, “tracing innovative, multidisciplinary investigations of form, structure, technique and planning.” However there are also interviews and essays, alongside 400 original drawings, collages and paintings. “Multiple, overlapping perspectives describe projects that vary widely in scope and approach.” These include large-scale infrastructure studies for the East River corridor and Hudson Yards in Manhattan, the Alishan Railway in Taiwan, and schemes for cultural institutions including New York’s New Museum, the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, and the University of Applied Arts Vienna.


“Carefully conceived” smaller projects


are documented too, from an imaginative water garden, to the Sagaponack House in New York. There are also “thought- provoking textual projects,” i.e. narrative works that “blur the boundaries of art and architecture,” such as a “meditation on language in the context of the Globe Theatre.” Reiser is also principal of architecture at Princeton University, and Umemoto has taught at numerous institutions. They jointly authored ‘Atlas of Novel Tectonics’ in 1996. Projects and Their Consequences (priced at £45) is certainly of interest not only to those who are keen to know more about what motivates this firm, and the thinking behind their projects. It’s also an intriguing demonstration of the multi-dimensional nature of architecture itself (as well as running a practice), from the problem-solving to the highly artistic.
