Hospital Architecture, Hardback Book

Hospital Architecture Hardback

Edited by Christine Nickl-Weller

Part of the Architecture in Focus series

Description

As life expectancy is extended, medical procedures continually advance and competition between health care providers intensifies, hospital design becomes increasingly important.

The idea that patients benefit from their surroundings has been acknowledged for some time, but it is only now that this concept has become the key to architectural solutions when building or redesigning hospitals and health care facilities.

Drawing on over 60 examples from across the world, this volume illustrates the contemporary approach to hospital architecture.

Today, architects and interior designers are striving to combat the typical sterile hospital atmosphere with innovative and exciting concepts, whilst still, of course, maintaining a high level of hygiene and functionality.

The projects chosen range from new private clinics to extensions and conversions of large inner-city clinical centers and specialized hospitals.
