In the final interview in the life after lockdown series, Branko Miletec talks to Anastasia Narkiewicz about the changing work environment in the post COVID-19 world
How, as adults, do you design a hospital from a child’s perspective? That was the challenge given to the team behind Perth Children’s Hospital: JCY Architects and Urban Designers, Cox Architecture and Billard Leece Partnership (BLP), with HKS Inc.
Designers are working in an exciting health and aged-care climate where the very definitions of the sectors are being questioned, challenged and redefined. Cox Architecture’s (formerly CODA Studios) joyous and uplifting design of Karratha Central Healthcare is a strong example of a multi-dimensional health facility providing medical services and training opportunities that contribute to the improved health and wellbeing of the regional community.
Can design provoke desired behaviour within a space? McBride Charles Ryan explores this possibility with colour, form and materiality in their most recent education project, Ivanhoe Grammar.
