CHILDREN’S HOSPITALS: HOW URBAN SITES INSPIRE INNOVATION
When: January 16, 2013 From 4:30pm -6:30pm
Where: ZGF’s Office 515 South Flower Street, Los Angeles, CA 90071
This month’s presentation of the AIA/LA Committee on Architecture in Healthcare will showcase three children’s hospitals designed by ZGF Architects - Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, opened in July 2011, The Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, opened in June 2012, and Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel in Portland, completed in February 2012.
Learn how the existing campus and complex context of each hospital inspired innovations not just in the architecture of the building, but in the flow, operations, functionality, and user experience. Each hospital is a leading example of how generative space can be effectively used to not only improve lives and organizational performance, but they also demonstrate how an innovatively designed caring environment can be used to improve the overall well-being of a broad community.
