Activity Center For The Terminally ill

After observing the increasing number of Jordanians suffering from chronic diseases, it has been concluded that those with a short period of time to live are in dire need to make the best out of the remaining time to find their real PURPOSE in life.

In contradiction, those who lead a normal lifestyle without any obstacles from a disease are not satisfied with what they’ve achieved as they’re always drifting toward obligations and away from what they truly love. It’s never too late to follow their PURPOSE in life.

After doing wide studies and interviews with different people, wishes and life goals were categorized into 8 different modules, each module resembles each category externally and internally.

Every module [ tree house ] projects itself underground to intersect with the public user experience, and influences them to invest in their lives.

The building’s main concept is to deliver to the user that “Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it, you can never get it back“. Invest in your life before it’s too late.
