This PhD project aims to investigate the current state of evidence-based design (EBD) practice in healthcare architecture and design.
Through an exploratory participatory action research (PAR) approach, the study aims to gain insights into how architects and designers use evidence in their practice and to identify challenges and barriers to the adoption of EBD.
The research also aims to develop tools and resources for healthcare design practitioners to facilitate the EBD process and to promote evidence-based practice.
The ultimate goal of this research is to contribute to the advancement of the profession by promoting more effective and reliable design practices that enhance the quality of healthcare environments.
