Available soon: Architecture for Health, the first of two new books by Christine Nickl-Weller and Hans Nickl, will be published by Braun Publishing AG before the end of 2020.
The architecture of hospitals reflects a changing society. How do we care for sick people? What kind of working environment do we offer the carers? How are hospitals embedded in the city? When planning a hospital, architects are not only faced with the challenge of combining function and construction in a way that makes sense. They also design rooms that serve patients, employees and relatives as a working and living environment for a short period of time.
Christine Nickl-Weller and Hans Nickl have been dealing with questions of hospital construction for 40 years. With their wealth of experience gained from practical work and academic research, they look at hospitals from various levels. This holistic look at hospital construction is enriched by contributions from renowned authors from different disciplines such as healthcare management, psychology, landscape architecture and art history.
In 2021, Christine Nickl-Weller and Hans Nickl will publish the second volume: Architecture for Science. Stay tuned!
