"The Hospital of the Future," a 12-minute short film produced by OMA / Reinier de Graaf, has been released as part of the exhibition "Twelve Cautionary Urban Tales" at Matadero Madrid Centre for Contemporary Creation. "The Hospital of the Future" is a visual manifesto that questions the prevailing conventions in the field of healthcare design, not only in terms of how hospitals are built but also why they are built the way they are built. It investigates the role that disease has played in shaping cities and concludes with a speculative exploration into the future of healthcare design.
The film emerges from a research project led by Reinier de Graaf together with Hans Larsson and Alex Retegan on the future of healthcare, which started in 2019.
"The Hospital of the Future" will be on display in the "Twelve Cautionary Urban Tales" exhibition until January 31.
The film was produced with the support of Matadero Madrid Centre for Contemporary Creation.
