Australasian Healthcare Design 2000-2015

The International Academy for Design & Health (IADH) and its Australasian partners have successfully launched a new and exciting publication at the 9th Design & Health World Congress in Brisbane, from 10-14 July.

A Critical Review of the Design and Build of Healthcare Infrastructure

Published by the International Academy for Design & Health

Edited by Kate Copeland with Marc Sansom, Kathleen Armstrong and Emily Brooks

Australian Healthcare Design 2000–2015 is a review of past, current and future projects and trends in healthcare design in Australia. It is a unique reference publication for researchers and practitioners working in the field of healthcare design, both within the region and internationally. Fronted by a collection of essays from prominent Australian academics and practitioners, it also contains a comprehensive catalogue of projects delivered during the most remarkable period of capital investment in health infrastructure ever seen in the region.

The publication coincided with the International Academy for Design & Health’s 9th World Congress in Brisbane in July 2013. Australia’s successful bid to host the event reflects the huge amount of new healthcare building that is taking place across the region, and the body of research and knowledge that has developed there as a result. This book aims to communicate to the rest of the world that the region has some of the most advanced healthcare buildings of our time.
