    Advising
    Humans, designers, and thinkers often dedicate monumental edifices to our creations and systems. I'd like to build a monumental tower for dream incubation and healing. Additional layers would be embedded within the morphology and programming of the tower. One layer would allude to early healing spaces called asklepions in Greece. People suffering emotionally, physically, or mentally would go and seek healing from the god Asklepios in their dreams. Those temples serve as the origin for the concept of a modern-day hospital. The building would also be rooted in its urban context, evoked by its skyscraper-like enormity. The project corresponds with the shift towards a more holistic approach in modern medicine, especially in urban environments.  See more on issuu .
