Challenges and solutions

According to Acibadem managers, “the seats were considered one by one, as an important element directly related to the architecture, in line with the design and the audience’s subsequent visual experience”. They added that, “as a result of the Figueras design, we believe that we have created an effective, functional, useful and emotive space for our students and the community”.
