Future Patient Food Supply, System Concept


What will the patient food supply be like in the hospital of the future? – Nutrigeno offers a possible scenario. The project sets the archaic theme of food into the context of modern high-tech medicine and discusses new possibilities of supply on the basis of current trends. Moreover Nutrigeno should stimulate a discussion about the topic.

The project originated out of the thought to improve a patient’s convalescence without further medication. In doing so the poles of atmosphere, food, and self-motivation were analysed. At the beginning a internship in the field of care, a visit to the Klinikum Braunschweig and literature research about the origin, opportunities and deficiencies of the hospital served as means to gain a deeper understanding of itself.
