In researching for this blog posting on the need for natural light, I’ve uncovered so much good information that I wouldn’t be able to do the subject justice to try to write about it today, when I’m crunched for time. So, stay tuned while I do a little more digging and collecting thoughts.
In the meantime, the best all-around article I’ve found so far is “A Review of the Research Literature on Evidence-Based Healthcare Design” by Roger S. Ulrich, Craig Zimring, Xuemie Zhu, Jennifer DuBose, Hyun-Bo Seo, Young-Seon Choi, Xiaobo Quan, and Anjali Joseph, published in the Spring 2008 issue of Health Environments Resarch & Design Journal, a quarterly journal published by the Center for Health Design and Vendome Group (Vol. 1, No. 3, pp. 61-125). This article (and the journal in general) is a must-read/have for anyone interested in Evidence-Based Design in healthcare. For subscription information, contact www.herdjournal.com.
