A TRANSFORMATIONAL HEALTH ENVIRONMENT
Preventative healthcare must be seen as an integral part of the healthcare professionals role, and of the community. Studies have found that the returns on investments in proven community-based disease prevention are substantial, US$6.60 for every US$1 invested.
In an innovative collaboration NBRSARCHITECTURE engaged 3 students of Architecture to dream a little, and to create a 21st Century response to the health care continuum. An opportunity for Australian healthcare lies in a wellness neighbourhood that engages the community and empowers life-long health activism rather than episodic care. The built environment should engage the community in a mission for wellness.
Is it time to examine a spatial design driven healthcare revolution?
Healthcare should take place in a physical space that enhances a person’s desire to improve themselves rather than waiting for a disease and seeking a cure
