Yantalo, Peru

Yantalo, Peru

Project Description

The Yantalo World Health Center was one of the longest-running projects for the NewSchool’s office practice studio class. Over the past ten years, more than 100 NewSchool students have helped design community buildings for the village of Yantalo, Peru including a hospital recognized by the United Nations World Health Center.

The health clinic, located in the remote part of Peru, was designed by NewSchool of Architecture & Design students through a collaboration with the Yantalo Community Foundation and NewSchool faculty. The 16-bed Yantalo Clinic & Diagnostic Center in the community of Yantalo is billed as the first “green” clinic in Peru, powered by solar power and smart water use to decrease environmental impact to the region and lower operating costs.
