Many patients require an additional period of recuperation and medical observation after receiving treatment for acute medical conditions. The number of these sub-acute inpatients and outpatients can fluctuate greatly, especially during a pandemic, highlighting the need for a quickly deployable and configurable care facility.
Healing terrarium seeks to provide a space like home for healing in the context of a sub-acute care facility. To do so, it integrates the flexibility of modular inflated arch structures set in nature together with humidity and ventilation control that crafts comfortable and safe environments.
