Kate Edmondson, Senior Architect at Penoyre & Prasad will present Oriel at the New London Architecture ‘Project Showcase: Building hospitals, with a shift in perspective’ on 25th February 2021.  

Oriel is a new building for sight-related care, with clinical, research and education facilities in Camden. The innovative centre for Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, UCL Institute of Ophthalmology and Moorfields Eye Charity lies within the Knowledge Quarter and near St Pancras station

Hospitals play a key role in society’s life and should be thought as integral to city planning. The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the UK’s reliance upon the hospital. While the healthcare sector is going through some major transformations and unprecedented investments, many hospital building plans have seen changes to reflect this new context we live in. Hospital builds, proposed, in progress and completed now have to hold a new prospective. What is the latest thinking in terms of patients’ care? What are the new hospitals being built across the capital? How can good quality design positively impact on the healthcare experience? These questions pose a need to look closely towards healthcare sector buildings and their roles within our future cities.
