  • Designing for Healing and Infection Control

    1 LU

    This course will analyze two case studies where laminate and solid surface materials were applied in healthcare settings to the benefit of patients, staff, and visitors. One case study explores hospital design and how site selection, color, surfaces, and open space can significantly impact healing and recuperation of hospital patients. The other case study examines a new solid surface material that is being tested for efficacy in combating the spread of pathogens known to contribute to hospital acquired infections. A groundbreaking clinical trial began in March of this year to apply this material throughout a hospital setting to determine to what degree it can minimize HAIs. Take the course.

  • Learning Can Happen Anywhere (Print Version)

    1 LU

    This course will explore two case studies of replacement schools in the Pacific Northwest – Cherry Crest Elementary and Riverview Elementary. The design of both schools embodies the concept of 21st Century Learning and the idea that learning can happen anywhere. Together, these projects tell a story of sustainability, ecological design and innovation in education architecture. Some schools turn their back on the natural environment. Riverview Elementary and Cherry Crest Elementary do the opposite by interconnecting their buildings to the outdoors. By using design to encourage curiosity about the natural environment, the buildings are part of the educational process – an innovative architectural concept in learning environments. Take the course.
