The health centre of the future will add multiprofessional health and social services to primary care. But how are such centres designed and who plans them?

Pandemics, demographic shifts and environmental influences are creating a complex diversity of healthcare needs. The expansion of primary care centres is to create community-based multidisciplinary services. What is the architecture behind them and what social role do they play in new and existing localities? The event brings together a range of perspectives from the fields of research, planning and politics.
Since 2020, the Space Anatomy research group has been dealing with questions about spatial health practices in Austria. A publication and a series of events have been produced in the course of this three-year research process.
