This book describes how architects can design better healthcare buildings for a rapidly changing context and climate. Innovation in the design of healthcare estates is essential to the sustainability of our health services. Design thinking in this field is being influenced by a range of factors, such as economic constraints, an ageing demographic, complex health conditions (co-morbidities), and climate change. There is an opportunity for architects and designers to be innovators in the future of healthcare through the design of buildings and cities that offer wellbeing and healing. It highlights the latest innovations in key areas of practice and research, with a range of case studies to provide practical lessons and inspire better design.
