The HEALING ARCHITECTURE Summer course explores opportunities to improve health outcomes and the state of well-being of all user groups through urban and architectural design.

An introduction on the need of experiencing the continuum of care in and out of hospital doors, will set the tone to continue deepening knowledge in the impacts and influences of the built environment on health.

Theoretical and practical exercises on three key topics will open the scope of opportunities for professionals interested in developing health & design projects: Healing Environments, an in-depth analytic session to the most important hospital areas in Europe; Medical Neighborhoods, a game changer aiming sustainable care systems and, Urban Walkability, an urban development engine for building positive health and health promotion in cities.

Vivid examples of best practice for healthcare architecture, patient-centered homes, and health-promoting neighborhoods will be shown and discussed in key *field trips to Copenhagen, Hamburg and around the vibrant city of Berlin.
