Architectural Association

Against the background of the major challenges in our aging society, the compact congress “Architecture for the Senses” as part of the conference series “New Developments in Healthcare Architecture” will shed light on the new complex tasks of all those involved in the care- and hospital sector as well as the spatial needs of patients. In the live stream, experts from the industry will talk about necessary, planning and business strategies and present construction solutions that meet the challenges of sustainable concepts for a healing environment. The importance of taking into account sensory perceptions such as acoustics, odor, haptics, light, air and climate in the planning process will be demonstrated using best-practice examples. This keynote lecture introduces the topic and the theory of spatial antropodysmorphia, which must form the basis of hospital design in the modern understanding of the evidence-based designer.
