9780470129340: Evidence-Based Design for Multiple Building Types

Evidence-based design, which bases design decisions on the best available current research evidence, is gaining traction among architects. Expanding the field from its origins in healthcare to other building types such as education, criminal justice, commercial, industrial, and places of worship, this book introduces design professionals to the concept of evidence-based design and its use in the creation of high performance environments. It focuses on the methods by which design professionals and their clients can create better buildings by critically interpreting the implications of credible research and careful observation of completed projects. Drawing a direct link between evidence and application, the authors provide examples of credible research that supports evidence-based design are presented, as well as specific applications and case study examples.

From the Back Cover:

"D. Kirk Hamilton, FAIA, and David H. Watkins, FAIA, have written this enlightening book showcasing the process and products of evidence-based design, a practice that should be in the top drawer of every architect's toolkit. Evidence-based design sounds a clarion call for more rigor in the knowledge-based practice of creating the built environment, as well as stronger collaboration and sharing of knowledge between client and designer. I can-t think of two people more qualified to have taken on this topic."
—From the Foreword by Christine McEntee, Executive Vice President/CEO, The American Institute of Architects

GAIN A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE FROM RESEARCH-BASED DESIGN

Evidence-based design enables architects and their clients to optimize design decisions via a process of gathering, evaluating, and applying current best evidence from research and practice. Written by leading experts in the field of evidence-based design, this book guides the reader through the complete process, culminating in the creation of high-performance environments, including:

  • Locating the best available evidence from a variety of fields and sources
  • Creating meaningful collaborations with clients and users for decision making
  • Recognizing and responding to the unique context of each project
  • Using critical thinking to interpret the implications of research
  • Establishing a strong chain of logic that links research findings to design

In addition to providing general guidelines for the evidence-based design process, the authors describe how the process is applied in the design of specific building types, including hospitals, schools, offices, retail stores, and performance spaces. Throughout the book, examples underscore the effectiveness of credible research to support evidence-based design decisions. Moreover, comprehensive case studies are presented for each building type, demonstrating, for example, how design impacts a worker's productivity and efficiency or a student's ability to learn and achieve.

Following the authors' advice, architects, interior designers, facility managers, and related professionals will learn to create better, more effective designs by moving from an approach based on intuition and anecdotal information to one solidly based on evidence and outcomes.
