Phylum H, Brunet Saunier Architecture on healthcare


Brunet Saunier Architecture is pleased to present its new publication: Phylum H, Brunet Saunier Architecture on healthcare, Hatje-Cantz Editions, Berlin.

This book offers an open look at a specific and still opaque area of ​​architecture: hospital design. Brunet Saunier Architecture has been dedicated for many years to studying and developing the process of integrating the functional procedures required in medicine, social requirements and spatial potential. Assimilating this complex expertise, their projects become fascinating time capsules. On the one hand, they offer an analytical look into the past, seeking medical, historical and typological elements of hospital functionality. On the other hand, they examine the potential offered by new technologies and the evolution of living and care practices. The result is unique buildings, characterized by a sophisticated mastery of the flexibility of the spatial structure, and giving a central place to the well-being of patients and caregivers. They create places of exploration for technology, knowledge, work and social life - for now and for the future. This publication deals with this unique creative process with the help of expert interviews, plans, photographic points of view and data extracted from the agency’s projects. Brunet Saunier architecture was founded in 1981 by Jérôme Brunet and Éric Saunier. The agency is mainly engaged in the construction of public buildings. The successful interplay of formal and functional aspects of hospital buildings has made the architectural firm famous across Europe.
