"Dr. Alan Dilani presents a most informative and useful analysis of hospital planning in Scandinavia, mainly Sweden, and sheds important light on the dynamic character of healthcare systems and their influences on architectural design. The book is unique in examining these influences in Scandinavian context, and helps to fill a gap in the literature available in English on hospital planning and design. The planning and design of healthcare buildings in Scandinavia warrants considerable international interest. Since the end of World War II, Scandinavia has deservedly gained a reputation for producing high quality healthcare buildings and, more generally, for establishing some of the world’s most advanced healthcare systems. The final part presents an in-depth case study of the planning process and architectural approach for a large and highly innovative hospital project, RIT 2000, the University hospital in Trondheim, Norway. This book is a valuable source of information, new research, and ideas for healthcare planners, architects, and administrators. I believe that it will prove useful and interesting for many of those working in healthcare in other countries.”
