A bed with hospital corners explores the uncanny aesthetics achieved by maximizing efficiency with minimal means. Staged as an aesthetic construct, the installation “A Hospital Corner” gives the opportunity to explore a form that synthesizes the relationship between architecture and health, and the space traditionally occupied by nursing labor.
It exposes the aesthetic qualities that have described the discrete sites for cure and care conventionally attributed to women, and the social expectations about their role in society, as if cleanliness, tidiness and nurture are a practice of theirs only.
THIS PROJECT WAS THE RESULT OF THE BERLAGE THESIS PROJECT EXHIBITION AT THE FACULTY OF ARCHITECTURE AND THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT OF DELFT'S TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY.
