City buses used as health care facilities
Casablanca, 29th December 2020

Alaa Halifi and Boudraa El Yazid, two students from Ecole d’Architecture et de Paysage de Casablanca win the 1st Architecture Pittsburgh Prize 2020 for Environmental Health Equity.

Their project named “(W) heal (Healing on wheel)” is a health protocol that aims to redesign the way we think about the health establishments of the future. The creative idea is to transform old buses to be used as a mobile health space.
Pittsburgh Platform in collaboration with Chalmers University and Carnegie Mellon University is an Ideas Competition for students within in the fields of architecture and urban planning to submit proposals on how to ensure environmental health equity. The competition was attended by young architects and students from around the world. The international jury made up of architects, town planners and academics, has appreciated the consistency and the flexibility of their project. The proposal was thought through a holistic approach that responds to health equity and an immediate need.
Congratulations to our Students, that dare to push boundaries and to communicate effectively as a team about their innovative idea at the world stage level.
