Balancing the needs of patients experiencing acute health issues with the systematic needs of a variety of medical professionals requires spatial environments that must nurture the human spirit. Environmental influences can create both efficient and effective healing mechanisms that not only treat the patient, but restore the body’s ability to heal. In this studio, students will utilize spatial constructs that establish code-compliance, critical adjacencies, workflow circulation, and formulate health care facilities that employ evidence-based design principles.

Outcome 1: Extend design responsibility to a variety of end user in health care settings (apply multi-disciplinary perspectives).

Outcome 2: Complete a programmatic analysis and research assessment of specific health care delivery systems and environments (innovate in research, design or practice).

Outcome 3: 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).
