Naturopathy – Challenge to design an Ayurvedic Treatment Center
PREMISE‘Health is wealth’ mantra is the key to leading a successful life. The depth of this truth is imperceptible in youth, but it becomes convincing, as time passes. Health and well-being is a valuable commodity, and every organization, authority, and individual is involved in its system.
While the history of medication is rich with natural and traditional treatments, with the advancement of technology, western medicine has dominated the global economy with its mass-production and fast-acting concoctions. But these medicines bear side effects in the long run. The allopathy industry is unsustainable, involving large-scale use of plastic for packaging, chemical pollutants released during manufacturing, huge amounts of waste produced and so on. Its effects are detrimental to not only human health but also the natural environment. Despite its shortcomings, why is western medication considered the most effective way of treatment?
BRIEF OF THE COMPETITION
The challenge is to design a medical center for Ayurveda specialists, for treatment and procedures. The building will be occupied by a diverse group of Ayurveda practitioners to increase the service’s accessibility to the general public. The spaces will be occupied by locally sourced medical experts providing them a chance at employment and income. This medical center must also be equipped to handle emergency cases and respond to local epidemics. The aim of the design is to build on the trend of global interest in traditional medication. The centre will help promote healthier alternatives to wide spread allopathy medication. This system is part of the cultural heritage of the region and knowledge passed down from generations, so its preservation is essential. Popularizing the ayurveda system will prove beneficial for local farmers and agriculture practitioners, positively affecting the environment.
