PROJECT SUMMARY

Primary healthcare center

This project, 20km west of Dharmapuri in Tamil Nadu, lies in the southernmost part of the Indian peninsula. With a low budget, the project serves to improve healthcare in this hot and semi-arid rural region.

The compact and small-scale building distinguishes between a high-tech medical core and a low-tech surrounding layer. Construction was completed in September 2011, and is reported to be functioning well.
