What is an Architectural Doctor?
In the emerging developments of Architecture and Medicine, there becomes a question of how this process can unfold to support the general public along with the many professionals in working together to create these solutions. With the integration of these two fields, it can provide healthier built environments for the individual and society at large.
Yet how can these two professions work better together for more cohesive solutions?
While tremendous development continues to occur in the sector of Healthy Hospital Design and the Health fields related to the built environment, how can these best practices support the public sector?
How does the information from the fields of Epidemiology, Toxicology and Bioinformatics reach the professionals in the fields of Architecture/Engineering/Construction (AEC) and utilize this knowledge for best practices? How will current research and knowledge in fields such as Evidence-Based Design and Integrative Medicine be integrated with Architecture and Health professionals?
How can each of these fields work together for best practices in supporting health and wellness for the public and society at large?
The Architectural Doctor Defined
This is where the role of the Architectural Doctor can support these whole systems integrations and connections to support each professional in providing support for all involved. This is especially important for the general public as the client/patient.
While the field of Health in Architecture continues to emerge and develop, the role of an Architectural Doctor is essentially there to be both a liaison to help interconnect these many fields, as well as to be a resource to the Architecture and Medical professionals in bridging these gaps.
The Purpose of the Architectural Doctor
The professions of both Architect and Doctor require a huge amount of knowledge, training and years of experience, and to add more to their already full plates can become quickly overwhelming. It’s not expected that the average Architect and Doctor will be able to learn their profession, as well as the intricacies of both professions.
