The Luis Calvo Mackenna Hospital is one of the most iconic children public hospitals in Chile.

Immersed in the concrete jungle of Santiago, Symbiotica will break the cement to bring back Nature’s expression.

These Native Islands will bring home to local flora, fauna and fungi, and provide medicinal leaves, flowers and fruits for patients, visitors, staff, and the general public.

The healing of the Earth is the healing of humanity. These Native Islands will help children recover and stand as a statement of action for the rewilding generation.

“The hospital has very interesting places to make Native Islands, or Miyawaki Forests. Conventional green areas will be transformed into forests, an inner cement courtyard will be rewilded, and abandoned and exposed soil will be renewed with micro and macro life. During the plantation, everyone will connect with the healing of Mother Earth and bring the experience back into their everyday life at the hospital.”
