Where Ideas Ignite

Can we change the world by bringing people together? Of course, we can. The Technology and Health building in Flemingsberg was built with that very ambition in mind. This is where scientists and students from several universities meet to exchange experiences and knowledge. They are also in close proximity to the University Hospital and Karolinska Institute. One step closer to better health for us all.


 


We all want to have good neighbours, and to be one – both at home and in the workplace. But how do you create a building that facilitates human connections as much as possible? That’s the question we asked ourselves when starting our work on Technology and Health (TAH) in Flemingsberg. Here, the KTH School of Technology and Health will mingle with Karolinska Institute, Camst (The Center for Advanced Medical Simulation and Training), the Red Cross University College and its nursing programme. It is all part of a bigger project, a centre for Life Science in conjunction with the University Hospital in Huddinge. The idea is to meet and learn from each other – in an environment that does its best to help.


 


Technology from the outside in


The Technology and Health building, which is the first of two in the new centre, is located on top next to the university hospital. The location encourages encounters and serves as the perfect starting point for the appearance of the building.


 


No doubt it was a huge project: the TAH building measures in at 22,000 square metres, and its neighbour NEO, which will be inaugurated next year, boasts 26,000 square metres (the latter will house the researchers from the Karolinska Institute). Between the two buildings is a plaza that serves as a meeting place and common main entrance.


 


The TAH building has everything that is needed for a functioning university environment: lecture rooms, reception, custodian, a lunchroom, clubroom, staff room and two large auditoriums, specially adapted for the various needs of KTH and the Red Cross. Plus, there are more exotic elements, like rooms where students can operate on lifelike dolls and a research apartment in which the home environment is under the microscope.


 


Defines Huddinge as a Life Science hub


TAH was inaugurated in October 2016, with students, teachers and researchers already flooding in – and hanging out along the streets and boulevards just as was envisioned. Might this lead to a completely unique approach to both health and technology in the future?
