Hospital buildings are highly complex infrastructural buildings which, in addition to purely functional, economic and efficient requirements, also have to comply with qualitative requirements. As part of the M1 design "A Children's Hospital for the University Hospital Aachen", the students dealt intensively with the hospital building typology and designed a children's hospital for the University Hospital Aachen with the help of a given room program.

The design work was accompanied by close cooperation with HDR GmbH, which supported the design process with specialist knowledge in the form of lectures and guest reviews. An excursion to the University Hospital Bonn gave the students an insight into the built practice.
