9783037681244: Hospital Architecture (Architecture in Focus)

As life expectancy is extended, medical procedures continually advance and competition between health care providers intensifies, hospital design becomes increasingly important. The idea that patients benefit from their surroundings has been acknowledged for some time, but it is only recently that this concept has become the key to architectural solutions when building or redesigning hospitals and health care facilities. Drawing on over 60 examples from across the world, this volume illustrates the contemporary approach to hospital architecture. Today, architects and interior designers are striving to combat the typical sterile hospital atmosphere with innovative and exciting concepts, whilst still, of course, maintaining a high level of hygiene and functionality. The projects chosen range from new private clinics to extensions and conversions of large inner-city clinical centers and specialized hospitals.

Book Description Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Braun Publishing | In Gesellschaften, in denen die Menschen tendenziell länger leben, die medizinische Versorgung sich kontinuierlich verbessert und der Wettbewerb im Gesundheitswesen an Schärfe gewinnt, werden Planung und Gestaltung von medizinischen Institutionen immer bedeutsamer.Es ist nun seit einiger Zeit anerkannt, dass Lebensqualitä t und Wohlbefinden integrale Bestandteile von Heilung und Genesung sind, doch erst jetzt kann davon gesprochen werden, dass der Qualität von Architektur und Design beim Bau oder der Neugestaltung von Krankenhäusern und Gesundheitseinrichtungen eine adäquate Bedeutung zukommt. Anhand von über 60 Projekten aus der ganzen Welt illustriert dieser Band die unterschiedlichen zeitgenössischen Ansätze. Die rasanten medizinischen Fortschritte sowie die zunehmend älter werdenden Gesellschaften haben die Aufgabenstellungen im Gesundheitswesen nachhaltig verändert. Bauten für das Gesundheitswesens müssen heute mehr als nur vorgegebene Standards und Funktionen erfüllen, es geht darum eine Umgebung zu schaffen, die den Menschen, neben der medizinischen Versorgung, durch Lebensqualität und Wohlbefinden darin unterstützt gesund zu werden und ebenso gesund zu bleiben. Die Institution Krankenhaus befinden sich im Umbruch von der reinen Fürsorgeeinrichtung hin zum serviceorientierten Gesundheitsdienstleister.Die in diesem Band vorgestellten Projekte zeigen die gestalterische Vielfalt des zeitgenössischen Verständnisses von Krankenhäusern mit Architektur und Design als integralem Bestandteil für die Heilung und Genesung. Es werden ganz unterscheidliche Möglichkeiten gezeigt, den wachsenden und ganz unterschiedlichen Befürfnissen der Nutzer, also der Patienten, Ärzten und Pflegepersonal sowie den Besuchern gerecht zu werden. So heterogen, vielfältig und facettenreich die verschiedenen Herangehensweisen auf dem Gebiet der Planung von Gesundheitseinrichtungen auch sein mögen, so ist allen präsentierten Krankenhäusern ein hohes Maß an Qualitätsbewusstsein gemeinsam, die den Menschen mit seinen individuellen Bedürfnissen in den Mittelpunkt stellt.Aus dem Inhalt:Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Nevada, USA (Gehry Partners)Psychiatric Hospital in Helsingør, Dänemark (BIG)Diabetic Center in Dubai, Vereinigte Arabische Emirate (Studio Altieri)Robert-Bosch-Krankenhaus in Stuttgart, Deutschland (Arcass)Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, Großbritanien (BDP) | Format: Hardback | Language/Sprache: english | 2638 gr | 41x236x301 mm | 424 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9783037681244
