From the architect. The new project for the Provincial Hospital in Klagenfurt is innovative in many ways. The latest Medical Technology along with an enhanced cross-utilization of medical equipment and facilities (operating rooms, examination and treatment rooms and wards in the logistics field) give this new hospital a pioneering status in Europe.

Even before completion, it served as an example to future developments. The architectural concept is an important part of this modern definition of a hospital. The flat, two-storey building fits well into the landscape on a site where the wetlands of the Glan River close off the land to the north.

The footprint of the building is largely determined by landscaped courtyards which open the building up to the site as well as carefully form more private areas for its users. The horizontality of the building is reinforced by the two main access routes: the curved corridor to the north, and the straight corridor which accesses the examination and treatment areas.

Large multi-storey glass facades give these zones, which are designated as the waiting and circulation areas, an inviting and more transparent open character.

Looks like a jail. Some nice details though, even if the overall image is extremely cold and megalomaniac.
