Nach positiver Absolvierung der Lehrveranstaltung sind Studierende in der Lage conduct independent research to support their design decisions. Furthermore, students will have learned how to collect various types of data using person-centred research methods (e.g. interview, survey, observation) and learn how to create evidence in the absence of relevant design standards for a specific design goal.

Inhalt der Lehrveranstaltung

Course participants will be presented with real-life design situations in healthcare environments, and they will adopt the role of a researcher to obtain new evidence and use it to guide the development of architectural solutions to address these challenges. The scientific method will be introduced to generate guidelines within the architectural design process and upgrade conventional design techniques by generating evidence for informing design decisions. Through a series of lectures and practical exercises, this course will explore the design requirements resulting from critical patient-centred challenges in healthcare environments (e.g., demographic change, difficult wayfinding, low patient mobility) and the methods that support architectural solutions that could be implemented to address these challenges in healthcare facilities.

This course is part of the initiative for the annual theme 2023/24 “Transformation des Bestands.” You can find more information and an overview of all participating courses at the following link: https://futurelab.tuwien.ac.at/jahresthema-2023-24
