AIA Shanghai awards Shanghai United Family Pudong Hospital with its highest design honour
At its first-ever awards program held in China, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Shanghai recognised the M Moser-designed Shanghai United Family Pudong Hospital with the highest Honor Award for Interior Architecture in 2018.
As a benchmark in China for international excellence in architecture, the event was held at the prestigious Peninsula Shanghai on the Bund to celebrate the country’s best designs and designers. “The evolvement of medical planning doesn’t happen overnight,” said M Moser’s Healthcare Design Lead Jessica Liu, who brings 20 years of experience designing innovative healthcare environments in the United States and China. “It takes time and progresses step by step.”
Using patient-centred design as a guiding principle, M Moser created a healing environment for patients, their families, visitors and medical staff of the Shanghai United Family Pudong Hospital, while ensuring operational efficiency of the entire facility. This 28,000 sq. m institution is more than just a hospital; it now operates as a medical system and a community-centric clinic.
“On behalf of the M Moser team, I would like to thank United Family Healthcare for being such a great partner to work with,” Jessica Liu added. “They have been very open-minded and collaborated closely with our team to push the boundaries of medical healthcare design. Our collective efforts have enabled us to design facilities of the highest international standards while meeting local regulatory requirements.”
M Moser is proud to add Shanghai United Family Pudong Hospital to its list of AIA-awarded projects in 2018. This recognition solidifies our commitment to designing people-centric environments and marks a stepping-stone in our growing healthcare design capabilities in China and abroad.
