the county of puyo in ecuador has received a new healthcare facility by PMMT arquitectura (patricio martínez, maximiá torruella). the ‘hospital in puyo’ is composed of three rows of eight staggered volumes that are each shaped with the silhouette of a house. the long pavilions are arranged next to one another, and at certain points are physically connected by pitched roof structures from the exterior, with linking hallways along the interior below.

glazing runs along the inner and outer lengths of the walls, offering visitors, patients and staff of the hospital, views of lush green landscaping planted between openings throughout the site. the challenge for PMMT when building the complex was that it needed to be constructed in record time — less than one year — while still emerging as a first-class leading facility for the area. to finish within the time frame the architets developed a modular architecture, with a high degree of fabrication as seen by the identical nature of the building components.
