(Update) Lecture: Hospital of the Future

Update: Here is the presentation I received via email after the lecture, courtesy of Ted Kesik, Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design – University of Toronto. It’s a PDF, so it loses some of the text between the transitions, but that’s better than no presentation at all. Click on the link below to see the presentation.

The Hospital of the Future – Some Slides

Previous Post:

The University of Toronto John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design has a lecture series every year and I attended Wednesday night’s lecture on the Hospital of the Future, by Dr. Ernesto Morales, a researcher from L’Insitut Universitaire de Geriatrie de Montreal (IUGM).

Dr. Morales was recently invited to participate in a project with the Research Centre for Innovation in Health Care (or Hogeschool Utrecht – HU) in Utretch, Netherlands for the Hospital of the Future. In his lecture he presented an initial design scheme, limited to the patient suite. He uses information gathered from literature and performed a Cochrane Review to determine what the primary needs of hospital users were, and combined with some Evidence-Based Design (EBD) proposals, synthesized it into a network of Values, Performance and Building System requirements.
