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 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.
