This study addresses the design strategy known as evidence-based design (EBD), and seeks to discover the current state of EBD use and perceptions of healthcare interior design practitioners in North America. The study also addresses the motivations of healthcare interior designers to use EBD, as motivations may lead to further understanding of EBD's staying power as a strategy. Several emergent points of this nationwide survey of healthcare interior designers provide support for the findings of other EBD surveys administered to related populations. One finding suggests that most responding interior designers engage with EBD at an elementary level as determined by analysis using Hamilton's levels of EBD use (2009). Another suggests that acceptable sources for evidence used to make design decisions vary, and some designers described that previous applied design practice experience (normative theory) is a valid source. Generally, results seem to confirm that EBD is likely in the early stages of making its mark on healthcare interior design. EBD has yet to reach widespread consensus in meaning and application, yet holds promise to provide enhanced validation to design processes.

It is now widely recognized that the physical environment has an impact on the physiology, psychology, and sociology of those who experience it. When designing a critical care unit, the demands on the architect or designer working together with the interdisciplinary team of clinicians are highly specialized. Good design can have a hugely positive impact in terms of the recovery of patients and their hospital experience as a whole. Good design can also contribute to productivity and quality of the work experience for the staff. 'Design for Critical Care' presents a thorough and insightful guide to the very best practice in intensive care design, focusing on design that has been successful and benefi cial to both hospital staff and hospital patients. By making the connection between research evidence and design practice, Hamilton and Shepley present an holistic approach that outlines the future for successful design for critical care settings. * Presents clear and tested guidance for these demanding technical design tasks * Provides detailed outlines of each element of the critical care unit, forming a comprehensive reference * Refers throughout to exemplary case studies from North America and the latest research to illustrate best practice in healthcare design methods and practice

Wie sieht es eigentlich bei denen aus, die täglich über gutes Bauen nachdenken? Wo entstehen die Ideen und Entwürfe für zeitgenössische Architektur? 76 Architekturbüros aus dem deutschsprachigen und internationalen Raum gewähren Einblicke in ihre Räumlichkeiten. Jedes Architekturbüro ist mit einer Aussenansicht, einem Innenraumfoto und einer Grundrisszeichnung dargestellt, in der zudem die Arbeitsplätze der Inhaber markiert sind. So werden nicht nur Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede zwischen den Architekten anschaulich, sondern auch die interne Organisation der Büros und die Haltung, die das jeweilige Gebäude ausdrückt. Die Räume, in denen Architekten heute arbeiten und Besuch empfangen, erzählen von einem Berufstand, der sich polyglott, bodenständig, provisorisch, ehrlich, ironisch, seriös oder verspielt gibt. Gearbeitet wird in Wolkenkratzern und Scheunen, in Stadt- und in Lagerhäusern, am Wasser und im Wald. Die exemplarischen Einblicke in 76 Architekturbüros werden von einer grundlegenden Betrachtung über Kontinuitäten und Brüche des Typus „Atelier/Studio“ begleitet.

Problem Solving and Critical Thinking for Designers will put the reader on the correct path to a solutions-oriented practice. Using her trademark accessible and conversational approach, Christine Piotrowski guides readers through the process of how the working designer solves problems and makes decisions. Some of the topics she discusses are: Design process Communication Asking questions Problem definition and analysis Decision-making process Negotiation Working with others Ethical decision making This book also features real-life scenarios and design problems that guide the reader toward making correct decisions in real-life situations.

Using psychology to develop spaces that enrich human experience Place design matters. Everyone perceives the world around them in a slightly different way, but there are fundamental laws that describe how people experience their physical environments. Place science principles can be applied in homes, schools, stores, restaurants, workplaces, healthcare facilities, and the other spaces people inhabit. This guide to person-centered place design shows architects, landscape architects, interior designers, and other interested individuals how to develop spaces that enrich human experience using concepts derived from rigorous qualitative and quantitative research. In Place Advantage: Applied Psychology for Interior Architecture, applied environmental psychologist Sally Augustin offers design practitioners accessible environmental psychological insights into how elements of the physical environment influence human attitudes and behaviors. She introduces the general principles of place science and shows how factors such as colors, scents, textures, and the spatial composition of a room, as well as personality and cultural identity, impact the experience of a place. These principles are applied to multiple building types, including residences, workplaces, healthcare facilities, schools, and retail spaces. Building a bridge between research and design practice, Place Advantage gives people designing and using spaces the evidence-based information and psychological insight to create environments that encourage people to work effectively, learn better, get healthy, and enjoy life.
