Text description provided by the architects. Through a synthesis of architectural genres (hospital, clinic, garage, administrative, and educational buildings) the Emergency terminal emerges as a new urban sign of safety, competence and speed. The 8-story facility includes a reception and telecommunications service, resuscitation clinic, in-patient clinic, Zagreb City’s medical supply storage, a lecture hall and classrooms, a laboratory, administration service, technical service and multi-story garage accommodating 170 medical vehicles.

Measuring up to the high criteria of contemporary architecture, the institution, approximately 14,000 sqm in surface area, can serve 2 million citizens. The steel skeletal construction with supported ceiling plates meets the architectural demands of lightness and spatial variability. An effective and rational solution for the large surface of the façade is the membrane net structure.

Within the heterogeneous surrounding the translucent character of the material (textile membrane - precontraint) contributes to the varying perception of the building during the day versus during the night. In the daylight the house dominates with its volume and attracts with the cleanness (sterility) of white. When lit up at night the membrane façade turns the entire house into a large, white lantern –the white cube becomes an illuminated landmark.
