The classes are taught by specialized course instructors with the objective of developing the theoretical and technical background that facilitates understanding of the diverse aspects involved in healthcare design.
THE AIM IS FOR STUDENTS TO:
- Engage in the process of designing a hospital taking into account both theoretical and practical aspects of the design.
- Consider the general conditions and requirements relating to the physical structure of a hospital incorporating essential knowledge of the complex and exacting installations involved in designing a hospital.
- Investigate new architectural programs in response to the new requirements of healthcare research.
Study in depth new issues and challenges that healthcare architecture pose in relation to the four research issues proposed by the academic direction:
-Research about new models of hospitals dedicated exclusively to a specific type of healthcare service.
-Investigation regarding hospital care areas (surgical units, external consulting units, etc.) in relation to emerging technologies.
-Research about non-hospital care areas (highly specialized health centers, residences for the elderly, etc.).
- Study of innovative construction systems.
