Children's Hospital Zurich
New building for laboratory, teaching and research
The Children's Hospital Zurich has commissioned ARGE KISPI (Herzog & de Meuron, Gruner) to plan and realize the acute hospital designed by Herzog & de Meuron. It is the largest hospital in Switzerland for the care of children and young people. The children's hospital offers the full spectrum of all pediatric and adolescent medical and surgical specialties. This will provide an exceptional counterpart to the neighboring Psychiatric University Hospital Zurich (PUK), the first medical institution to be located in Lengg. A counterpoint to the hospital building is provided by the building for teaching and research on the north site, which stands out self-confidently and symbolically. The view of the PUK from Lenggstrasse remains and the northern area can still be experienced as a continuous green space. The new building is designed around a central, glazed inner courtyard, which allows a direct visual connection between researchers, students, assistants and professors. The auditorium area is also connected to this hall via a large skylight. The exchange of knowledge and ideas between employees to promote innovation is of central importance here.
