The built and natural environment can provide efficient and effective mechanisms that restore the body and mind’s ability to heal. In this studio, students will utilize spatial constructs that apply principles of environmental psychology; address code-compliance, critical adjacencies, and workflow circulation; and support evidence-based design principles.
Extend design responsibility to a variety of end users in health care settings (apply multi-disciplinary perspectives).
Complete a programmatic analysis and research assessment of specific health care delivery systems and environments (innovate in research, design or practice).
Design a health care environment which promotes the patient’s ability to heal and the medical staff’s ability to be productive (think critically, write, speak and use visual communications effectively).
