Description

Recent French and German hospital examples suggest that good architecture can contribute to an agreeable, orderly and well-maintained environment. American evidence-based design recently compared the effects of various spatial factors and provided, for the first time, indisputable evidence of architectures positive influence.

The Architecture of Hospitals considers both that kind of influence and the position of the hospital as a public, representative building with special societal functions. This richly illustrated book includes, along with essays and in-depth historical studies, a selection of groundbreaking new designs.
