Mengying Li

China’s medical system is different from Western countries. Patients need to communicate with doctors repeatedly during treatment and long queues and repeated times visits cause significant pressure on patients and doctors. The emergence of the epidemic has increased the anxiety of patients and doctors. Take the First People's Hospital of Jining City as an example. Built-in 1893, the venue is mixed with people and vehicles, and there is no space for resting. At the same time, different spaces are enclosed piecemeal by traditional old-fashioned walls, making it more difficult for people to navigate. In addition, people can only wait anxiously for treatment outside the hospital. The government addressed this problem and built a new underground parking lot for bicycles and cars underground, however, there is still no comfortable space inside the site. Based on the analysis, the original enclosed space is opened up so the hospital is connected as a whole, and the available venues in the hospital are legible. The design carries out rational transformation to increase the venues for activities and rest. Try to create comfortable environment for users, make them feel relaxed in hospital. Horticultural therapy and aromatherapy is introduced to the hospital, full use of the plant's function, patients and doctors experiences in the hospital, to provide corresponding activity space for the surrounding residents that transform the hospital into an overall activity space, a space different from other Chinese hospitals.
