Good-Natured Design

Apr 09, 2015

There’s plenty of research showing how access to nature, daylighting, and fresh air can aid in the healing process, and this has driven many healthcare projects to dip their toes into “greener” waters, adding larger windows in patient rooms, installing a green roof, or providing a garden or walking path on campus. Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, Australia, takes this effort to a whole new level—and shows what can happen when you combine a dedicated project team and owner, evidence-based design (EBD), and a plan that integrates landscape elements into the building design.
