Architects for Health launch student design charette
Deadline for entries is November 16
Architects for Health has launched a competition for architecture students to win a place on their 2012 charette week.
During the four-day residential course the students will work in groups to address the growing issue of comorbidities and particularly the increasing prevalence of forms of dementia with other illnesses.
Working with challenging central London sites, students will consider how interaction with the city can be used as a therapeutic environment. The brief will cover an elderly assessment unit, a day facility, a virtual ward and an acute elderly ward.
Tutoring, lectures and seminars will be taught by healthcare designers, academics and representatives from hospitals. Students will also visit a range of existing relevant buildings as well as becoming familiar with the St Thomas hospital site.
The course will run from January, 15-18, 2013.
To apply, send a two page CV, four A4 images of your student work and a short cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by midday on November 16.
