Lujiazui has the most famous skyscrapers in the world, and the price of space is extraordinary. Shanghai Oriental Hospital is 100 meters high. When space is scarce, the only way is to build up. There are very few comprehensive hospitals in the world that are 100 meters high and operate smoothly. The plan selects the maximum area under the red line permitting conditions, each floor is about 2,000 square meters, achieving maximum space savings within limited conditions. At the same time, the combination of vertical traffic has created the necessary and basic transportation facilities for us to design this high-rise comprehensive hospital, which makes this 100-meter-high comprehensive hospital with high comfort and high utilization rate. The desire to reach sex is possible.

The shape of the building is simple and pure. Simplicity is the manifestation of intensive and economical architectural forms, and it is also a simple and elegant eternal theme. From the Renaissance to the present, the group of doctors who have been leading the rational spirit of the times need to demonstrate the rationality, efficiency and simplicity and tranquility of medical work. The heart of a weak patient needs a simple and quiet form of architecture to soothe.

In the process of planning and building new buildings, the old buildings must remain open, and the old and new interfaces become extremely important. Now they can be seamlessly connected and communicated in future hospital spaces.

The façade is made of hidden frame glass and shade aluminum alloy plate, which can naturally ventilate and illuminate to save energy, and can use sun visor to reduce sunlight and directly penetrate the building. The exterior wall features a uniform white fluorocarbon lacquered aluminum alloy flap that maintains the continuity of the horizontal lines and allows light to scatter into the space, making the entire interior feel softer.

The façade is folded around the entire rectangular hospital building, and each angle uncovers different views for the viewer. The lines of the facade are interlaced and light as a stack of paper.
