More InformationShow full item record
Technology has impacted the human perception of health through monumental advancements, but the process of healing has been diminished to where the sole focus of health care has become “to resolve” instead of “to heal”. “To resolve” is finding the most efficient, cost effective, short-termed solution and move on to the next customer, whereas, “to heal” means aiding in the rebalancing of an imbalance within one’s life. “To heal” is a pathway that mediates a process of healing, oriented towards a solution, but not an immediate one. The healing path created, by architectural expression, will express cultural ideologies and emphasize the character of nature through a dialogue created by architectural expression, focused on experiences inspired by such things. Through this manifestation of programmatic elements and experiences, architecture will become a journey that is organic to the patient while specifically addressing their healing needs.
