Jury Notes: The jurors praised the thinking behind this project – Healthcare that would be a delight to experience. Here is an example of extremely thoughtful planning and sustainable strategies using a modular kit of parts. One could imagine the actual built product, comprised of local labor and material would yield a delightful crudeness and handmade feel – enhancing the user experience.
