dc.description.abstract Mind, Body, Spirit and Environment. Healthcare environments are efficient and maximize the treatment and individual receives, however, is this enough? By delving into the development of the sanatorium and how it introduced a new type of healing environment into healthcare we begin to see connections. Further the biophilia hypothesis and the relationship to the work of Roger Ulrich begin to uncover a close link to the environmental side of healthcare. These factors share a close link on the personal side of the interaction touching on the mind, body and spirit, all crucial elements of the healing process. As a counter to the sanatorium is the modern day medicinal approach to healing and the now traditional side to healthcare as we know it… The proposal: The development of a new healthcare environment that begins from the onset of arrival as one travels inwards. The goal is to constantly challenge the preconceived notion of what is healthcare and how it exists. A project which takes the optimistic view and exploits it to show the power of an idealistic situation. This thesis is intended to create a dialogue of new and exciting innovations to make healthcare as humane as possible for everyone involved en_US
