AIA Life Designers designed a new medical facility for Jiujiang University. After 15 months of construction, the 2nd Affiliated Hospital of Jiujiang University tops up in December 2021. Mr. Yang Wenbin, Deputy Secretary of Municipal Party Committee, Mayor of Jiujiang City, and Mr. Zhao Wei, Secretary of the Party Committee of Jiujiang University visited the project site. Mr. Yang Hai, General Manager of AIA Life Designers China Branch, made a detailed report regarding the design conception and project construction to them.
The project covers an area of 110 mu, with a building area of about 170,000 m2, and is organized with 800 inpatient beds, and 100 infectious disease beds. It is a Grade A Academic Hospital featuring tranquil gardens and advanced technology. The function includes internal medicine, surgery, emergency, and rehabilitation .etc. The project is marked as a significant project and brand of Jiujiang Medical Facility. The hospital will have its trial operation on August 1, 2022, and be officially put into use on October 1, 2022.
Designers get inspiration from Lushan, an outstanding natural creation located in Jiujiang City. The project volume is modeled as Lushan, showing the rhythm of mountain rock. The central garden mimics the greening of Lushan and the design of interior space reminds people of soft clouds up around the mountain.

The hospital is located north of Lushan and surrounded by its great ecologic environment from which the design conception derives. The scenery out of the hospital window is just like a painting, and the clouds varify unpredictably.

The tower has a curtain wall construction of grey rock with varying grain density, treating technology, and collage. The podium façade is designed with brownish terra-cotta to show the warmth of the ground.
▲ Central Garden
The interior design also takes the element of Lushan as a reference, showing the beauty of rock and cloud by applying appropriate colors and materials, which enhance the relaxed spatial experience. The entrance hall is adorned with grille up on the ceiling and natural light throughout the interior, creating a feeling of ‘in the cloud’. The rehabilitation and administration buildings replicate the style to achieve a harmonious unity with the whole project.
