From course-PM year 2021:

Purpose, learning objectives
Designing spaces for healthcare is one of the most complex and therefore challenging architectural design commissions there is. You must be able to handle intricate design tasks in which many and often conflicting parameters have to be prioritized and weighted with many stakeholders involved. In this process you are requested to create a high quality building design, coordinating a good, safe and secure patient environment combined with requirements for high-class work conditions, sufficient space for treatment, care logistics, advanced technical systems design etc. Also the urban context of the healthcare facility in focus needs to be considered.

The Healthcare Studio at Chalmers Architecture has a curriculum that is founded on a dedicated pedagogical vision. It combines explorative design exercises with analytical and systematic procedures, literature studies and organized reflection. The Studio works with context-rich "real" commissions that are a part of the planning processes in one Swedish County Council/ Region together with clients and users.

The students shall obtain general knowledge about and ability to design complex and sustainable healthcare buildings integrated into the surrounding environment and urban setting. This includes among other aspects.
- Design healthcare facilities that supports sustainable development from environmental,
social and economic aspects.
- Work interactively with complex programming, combining spaces for care, patient
experience, work environment, logistics and architectural systems thinking.
- Handle a design driven work method for complex commissions.
