MEDICINS SANS FRONTIERES HQ
Project by: Sou Fujimoto Architects
Location: Geneva, Switzerland
Size: 15,000 m2
Status: Competition proposal
Medicins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) held a competition between six architectural firms. Sou Fujimoto Architects proposed a building inspired by MSF's 'Clinic Under a Tree' that operates in Africa.
The tree, its branches, the movement and circulation that such an artifact can create are strongly embedded in the design with its indoor and outdoor stairs, pathways and tall open patio.
