Medical Habitats

Working with colleagues in the USA, UK and Australasia Medical Habitats is developing techniques for enhancing human thriving through the re-thinking of space, human movement and representation in medical and healthcare environments. In particular, the project is exploring how creative knowledge, applied to design and representation in healthcare, can improve medical environments, resulting in more positive reactions to medical treatment, building further on physician-patient relations, and improving the association between medical care and other forms of social advancement, and between the business of healthcare and its ultimate results..
