THE REBIRTH OF THE CLINIC 

BY YONGPENG SHEN

This project aims to promote and support the community of the currant literature about the present and future role of general practice and primary health care. General practice serves as an important contributor to the growth of the Melbourne city. It provides first level primary medical care for most of the population. Located on the South Melbourne site on the corner of Kings Way and Park St, the proposal establishes new living prototypes that are generating design at a number of levels: Diversity, Economy, Safety, Innovation, Green and Neighborly. After a close study of the disciplines of nature (trees at the site) and a reconsideration of the response to the site, the intention is to require giving a new life of building designs and relationships between rooms.
