Symposium in honour of Roger Ulrich – Healing Architecture

När: 10 Dec
Kl. 09.30-15.30

Plats: Chalmers University of Technology, Scaniasalen, Göteborg

Stefan Lundin, Architect Lic. White Arkitekter and Chalmers, University of Technology, will hold a lecture on Healing Architecture – Evidence, Intuition and Dialogue.

Roger S. Ulrich, Ph.D., EDAC, has been named as a Changemaker award recipient by The Center for Health Design 2015. Roger Ulrich is a professor of architecture at the Department of Architecture and the Center for Healthcare Architecture at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden. He is the most frequently cited researcher internationally in evidence-based healthcare design.

In his work, Roger Ulrich has bridged the gap trans-disciplinary and trans-scientifically by raising awareness and interest for the importance of the health care environment among researchers from many different scientific fields – architecture, psychology, nursing, medicine, etc. He replaced the previously frequently used concept of “healing environments” with “evidence-based design”. This invited actors from surrounding fields such as medicine to be interested and assimilate the importance of Health care environments into their work and knowledge.
