Participatory Planning and Design of a New Children’s Hospital

Jul 01, 2000

This paper addresses the environmental concerns dealing with the planning, architecture, and interior design of a hospital. It stresses the importance of the planning phase which develops the building program. For a children’s wing at the Hillerød Hospital in Denmark, a method known as the user-participation process involved the users of a children’s hospital, that is, the children themselves, their parents, and the professionals who care for them in the planning and design process of the wing.
