Can good design improve health? This question is at the heart of the work of the International Academy for Design and Health: it aims to bridge the gap between academic research into the subject, and a global audience of architects, clinicians and economists.

 

The Academy's quarterly journal, World Health Design, offers a forum for sharing this expertise. I have written several market reports for the journal, each focusing on a different region or sector. Each involves:

 

- Research into the particular clinical issues faced by each region or sector, and how that feeds in to the design and development of healthcare institutions

- Research into how healthcare is organised and funded in each region or sector, and whether these present any business opportunities for architectural practices

- Sourcing and speaking to architects and hospital managers on the ground: what are the challenges and opportunities faced by them?  

- Finding case studies of exceptional building projects in each region or sector.
