Hospital Interior Architecture Health care is the fastest growing sector of the economy and the need for experienced design consultants has never been greater, Despite this fact, there are few books or references to guide architects, interior designers, and hospital administrators on critical issues for the 1990s. Hospital Interior Architecture explores the latest research on the relationship between the environment and healing, surveys a range of outstanding facilities. and most importantly, enables readers to gain the leading edge in a highly competitive field. More than 450 illustrations-including over 200 color plates-make this reference as visually appealing as it it informative.

Research and methods from diverse sources have been integrated into design guidelines for each special patient group. Thought-provoking commentary on controversial issues provides insight into new fields of inquiry challenging researchers. Special features of the book include:
