Healthcare facilities, hospitals, small cities in enclosed spaces; people working, people recovering; babies being born, people dying. Is it really possible to build a place that supports all these different activities? Mai-Britt Beldam explores.
Innovation and the new Alder Hey Children’s Hospital
This presentation observes that hospital design reflects the personality of both the development team and the client organisation. The team at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital has developed a number of new hospitals in the UK, developing a detail-driven approach to hospital design and supporting a vision for buildings to have the balance and personality of Vitruvian Man (striving for excellence in all aspects of form, function and structure).
Can healthcare heal our communities and the planet?
The delivery of care in healthcare facilities results in an ever-increasing environmental footprint, which contributes to damaging the health of the community it seeks to serve. This keynote address examines this contradictory connection between healthcare and environmental health, and explores what can be done to realign the relationship in a positive direction.
