This spring 2017 semester, Architecture + Health Graduate Studies students in their final semester will be designing their comprehensive projects, a Long Term Acute Care Hospital to be located on the Watauga Medical Center campus in Boone, North Carolina. The First Year graduate A+H students will be researching and investigating healthy communities planning examples, ultimately implementing these Healthy Community planning concepts and guidelines into a comprehensive masterplans and zoning proposals for the Watauga Wellness District in Boone, NC.  This is a Public Service Project and is funded by the Appalachian Healthcare System and supported by both the Health System and the Town of Boone.  Throughout this process, the students will be gaining insight and feedback from professionals from the Town of Boone and the Watauga Medical Center as well as from a larger Community dialogue during the three (3) Public Forums that the students will be presenting their analysis of existing conditions and zoning regulation, three proposed alternatives plans, and a final comprehensive master plan based on that dialogue.

Fall 2016 Project Overview - OR Mockup and Ambulatory Surgery Center

During the fall 2016 semester, both studios investigated the Ambulatory Surgery Center in various scopes. Second-year students designed and built a full-scale mock up Operating Room at the Clemson Design Center in Charleston. This mock up and its design are to serve as a test prototype for an optimal, adaptable and flexible ambulatory surgery OR "platform" or "chassis". First-year students in the Architecture + Health program focused upon the design of an Ambulatory Surgery Center in its entirety. During the 2016 RIPCHD.OR Workshop in Charleston, SC, both studios worked collaboratively with clinicians and healthcare architects to create guidelines related to the OR and Ambulatory Surgery Center flow processes, information which will be then applied toward their project designs.
