Indonesia consists out of 17.500 islands. With 255 million inhabitants it‘s the fourth densely populated state in the world. The decentral geographical structure and the moist climate make it difficult to ensure healthy living conditions for many Indonesians. Malnutrition, inadequate child care and non-functioning water and sanitation supply structures form major health issues.
During the excursion we visited three different geographical situations: rural, sub-urban and urban. Considering the fact that almost half the population live in remote areas without any health supply structures at all, we chose to design our building on the Island Pulau Abang, which is situated south of Batam. We estimated that establishing a decentral health supply structure in regions where it is needed the most would have the most significant impact on the health condition of the country. Oasis is a design proposal for one of many small clinics which are to be placed on strategic locations within Indonesias archipelagos, surrounding and communicating with larger health establishments in urban areas. The resulting network improves the exchange of digital patient data and organizes the physical transport of patients according to the individual necessity in the best way possible.
