HMMD Architecture Competitions lancia un nuovo concorso di architettura per raccogliere idee per una futura casa dell'ossigeno a Cracovia città con un alto tasso di malati di cancro al polmone. Il Centro dovrà fornire un ambiente confortevole e di supporto nei momenti difficili per i pazienti, così come i loro amici e famiglie.

HMMD Architecture Competitions is challenging architecture enthusiasts to produce design visions for the Krakow Oxygen Home, a community centre for the people in Krakow with lung cancer, as well as their friends and families.

Since Krakow has some of the worst air pollution in all of Europe, the number of people with chronic lung diseases is significantly high. Therefore the need for the Krakow Oxygen Home is ever more prevalent. The key function of the building will be to provide a comfortable and supportive environment in difficult times to the patients, as well as their friends and families. This is an opportunity for enthusiasts to use architecture and design to create something to help heal a hurting community and spread a strong message of hope.
