The project for the New Galliera Hospital is the result of a work aiming at creating an architecture fully fitting the Ente Ospedaliero of Genoa expectations, dealing adequately with the urban fabric and the surrounding landscape and expressing in a contemporary key the spirit of the founder Duchess of Galliera, in the interest of the city and the community.
The Final Design of the New Galliera Hospital has integrated, through a holistic approach, the medical-organizational-functional aspects with the urbanistic-architectural landscape ones.
To fit harmoniously into the urban and landscape context of Carignano, the intervention is divided into two parts: a semi-hypogean that organically follows the irregular size of the lot, and an epigean that takes up the regular size of the urban scale defined by the existing surrounding buildings.
