Creating Spaces with Emotion Through Integration of Architecture and Art
Jennie Hydro, Nikki Mancuso
We will review case studies including a café at Pennsylvania Hospital; adaptive reuse at Penn Medicine; and an ocean-inspired seaside facility at AtlantiCare. We will explore how to transform space into patient-centric environments promoting wellness of body, mind, and soul. Partnered with Harvard Research, we conducted a biophilic design study over 1.5 including testing hypotheses which will be explored.
Destigmatizing Mental Illness Through the Arts
Dartmouth-Hitchcock is currently hosting the compelling 99 Faces Project about destigmatizing Mental Illness. This presentation will demonstrate the power of the arts in addressing pressing issues in our communities that will inspire education, action and understanding. It will give you the tools to maximize your resources and time in planning for programming as well as how to create community internally and externally to ensure the greatest impact of an exhibit or program.
Patient-Centered Environments: The Lasting Effect of Art in Facilities
Gordon Huether, Ken King
This lecture leverages quantitative data to showcase the lasting positive effects of integrating art into healthcare facilities. Currently there is a need to shift our healthcare infrastructure to support more patient-centered care. This discussion provides an irrefutable case for how art in healthcare environments provides a solution to this need and enhances the healthcare system through analysis of data collected from various case studies.
