> WINNING PROJECT AT THE AGA KHAN AWARD FOR ARCHITECTURE 2013
A cardio-surgery centre to offer highly specialized assistance to patients affected by cardiological pathologies. The Salam Centre is run and managed by the Italian based humanitarian organisation Emergency ngo. The centre started its clinical activities in April 2007. "Salam" means peace in Arabic.
