Philippe Barriere Collective (PB+Co) has released the plans for a Bio Climatic Health Care Facility at an eco-resort in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. The facility includes a Chelation Clinic, Integrated Dental Domes, Healing Clinic, and individual bungalows for private patient residences. Overall, the alternative medical center intends to combine wildlife discovery, nature conservancy, and outdoor activities as part of the patients’ healing processes. Overlooking the Al Ain Lake is a tower set on pilotis, so as to minimize its impact on the lake’s coastline, and still attract a wide variety of birds, frogs, fish, insects, and more. An external textile veil shelters the entirety of this tower, like a “loose cap,” shielding the building from the sun, and providing a buffer air zone that constantly circulates air.
