Abstract

Starting from an analysis of the health care levels in Indian scenario, the research project “Healthcare for All” developed a meta-project that considers all the current criticisms and the Indian customs through a flexible layout that responds to the healthcare needs of population of West Bengal. The innovation of the research work is to develop a design solution that considers hygienic aspects, hospital design and distribution issues, with the sub-division of paths. The choice of low cost and local technologies permits to promote the usage of natural materials, their maintenance and skills for creating a virtuous economic system.
