Obstetrics Department

[If you don’t know me, I’m a senior in the interior design program at Auburn University in our #4 ranked design program.  I’m currently searching the U.S. for an internship opportunity for this summer 2010. ]

It was quite difficult to develop the Obstetrics Department for my Women’s and Children’s hospital.  I am in the preliminary phases of my thesis project, and this floor plan will be edited and improved.  We are developing new departments each week, and we will finish the semester with an entire REVIT model of the hospital.  I’m very interested in learning BIM modeling.   We conducted a group critique today, and there are already new ideas for alterations in space planning.  Healthcare involves an enormous amount of information gathering and programming, and  I’m doing my best to use multiple sources of reference.  I wanted to upload my progress.  Let me know if you see anything for improvement.  I’m always open to new ideas and corrections.

Healthcare Design

I am currently in my senior thesis studio focusing on Institutional Design (in the interior design program at Auburn University).  We are designing a woman’s and children’s hospital.

In doing research, I have found inspiration through the partnering of Parsons The New School for Design and Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Architects on their Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC).  Below is a series of images that inspire me to create a hospital that supports human healing through a connection to nature and daylighting.  Find out more.

“The goal of the students’ work was to inspire options for chemotherapy suites for patients in a satellite outpatient center in Brooklyn.

“The goal for Parsons was to challenge the roles that interior designers can play in contemporary society by shaping the physical, emotional, and psychological experience for patients in ways that empower them.” _ Staff — Interior Design, 1/12/2010
