2030 The Cycle of Wellness – A Transformational Health Environment.
NBRS+PARTNERS is delighted to the launch an innovative exploration of a transformational health environment: The 2030 CYCLE OF WELLNESS.
Preventative healthcare must be seen as an integral part of the healthcare professional’s role, and of the community. Studies have found that the returns on investments in proven community-based disease prevention are substantial, US$6.60 for every US$1 invested.
In an innovative collaboration NBRS+PARTNERS engaged 3 students of Architecture to dream a little, and to create a 21st Century response to the health care continuum. An opportunity for Australian healthcare lies in a ‘wellness neighbourhood’ that engages the community and empowers life-long health activism rather than episodic care. The built environment should engage the community in a mission for wellness.
“Healthcare should take place in a physical space that
enhances a person’s desire to improve themselves rather
than waiting for a disease and seeking a cure”
Dr Roy Brancatisano. The Circle of Care 2012
Is it time to examine a spatial design driven healthcare revolution? Please join us for breakfast for the launch of the journal and see these bright students in action. Having undertaken extensive research as well as drawing on recent educational experiences, the students will propose and range of progressive design solutions that support a life-long health care model.
