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.
