Medical Center for Fukushima “Life & Future”

Medical Center for Fukushima “Life & Future”

Medical Center for Fukushima “Life & Future” is a facility which was newly constructed within the Fukushima Medical University Hospital as a major pillar of reconstruction of Fukushima. Incorporating the wish for Fukushima to leap into the future, the prefectural bird "kibitaki" is used as the design motif for the total design of the interior, graphics, art, and signs. By making the interior thoroughly simple, the visibility of signs is increased and the signs themselves become accents in the space, with the intention of also appearing like trees where kibitaki can stop and rest their wings.
