PhD Seminar with Stefano Capolongo – Healing Architecture: the experience based approach for rethinking the hospital 4.0

Design of Architectures for Health is today an opportunity to interpret multiple drivers that are transforming contemporary social, economic and environmental paradigms. New models for a Hospital 4.0 are needed to face the complexity of such infrastructures and deliver innovative strategies for the hospital design of the future. A collection of keywords and case studies will be investigated, unfolding the challenges of healing architectures in the past, present and future.
