Article 10 is a project that provides basic health care through the EMERGENCY Association.
The device includes a basic outpatients clinic and a waiting room, sheltered and shaded, on the outside.
A system of overlapping curtains provides shade in summer and insulation in winter.
During the night, a bright sphere illuminates the surrounding area, enlarging its field of action to a public space and indicating its presence even at a distance.
