Thank you for putting together this great show today. As an Interior Designer practising in the Healthcare field for many years, this material is right on target with what we are working with on a daily basis. Raising wider awareness of the benefits to creating more supportive environments for healing will help build the case. I notice a tendency to blame architects for the poor quality buildings and spaces that we have all experienced over the years. While there may have been a lack of attention to this issue by the design professionals in the past, the real drivers tend to be on the Owner's side. The pressures of cost control and re-imbursement structures have more influence on the built envirnoment than the best intention of the design team. Making the case with measureable outcomes and Evidence Based Design will go a long way to improving everyone's experience in Healthcare settings. Thanks again for this conversation.
