Chipperfield wins international Pisa hospital comp

  • Comment
David Chipperfield Architects has won an international competition to redevelop the University Hospital of Santa Chiara in Pisa, Italy.

The hospital's current site, in the heart of Pisa's old town, has UNESCO World Heritage status.

The Milan office of the London- and Berlin-based practice will dismantle and relocate a group of hospital and university buildings to a specially designated area outside the old town, while also working on the current site.

Chipperfield said the project involved the 'development of a consistent plan for the urban redevelopment, and the urban landscaping and architectural enhancement of the area'.

The practice added that the proposal would also boast two colonnades which, according to the firm will 'face each other and embrace the public space, generating a new hinge for the city'.
