    A Study on the Characteristics of Design Processes for Healthcare Architecture

    Choi, Kwangseok | 2009, 15(2) | pp.13~22 | number of Cited : 1
    Healthcare facilities design in Korea actually has begun from the late 1960s and early 70s and accomplished unprecedented growth qualitatively and quantitatively. In the 1970s and the 80s, domestic healthcare design was greatly influenced by the Japanese. In the 1990s, under the competitive healthcare-market environment, great concerns were dominated to american healthcare facilities than the Japanese which have comparatively monotonous architectural forms. In the meantime, domestic healthcare architecture firms have continuously learned about design know-hows of the US, Japan and even European countries. Now I would like to evaluate that they are stepping onto in level that can equally compete with the advanced foreign architectural design companies. This study, investigating and consolidating architects' ideas and contents which experienced in design processes of real projects in current healthcare field, is purposed to find characteristics in design work of healthcare facilities and share the experiences. Method of research executed questionnaires to 22 special designers who design each 20 healthcare facilities. Questionnaire attained from July to October, 2008. Hereafter, it is going to present adjusting design process for healthcare facilities by analyzing various debris that is made in the process with design results that is made through design process.

    Survey study on planning direction of integrated model for the disabled and the elderly

    Kang Pyoung Keun , Kwang-jae Park , Ki-Chang Seong and 3 other persons | 2009, 15(2) | pp.23~30 | number of Cited : 1
    The purpose of this study is to suggest planning directions of architectural integrates model by analysing the foreign case of integrated services for the aged and the disabled. For this study, we have researched on three different aspects. Three aspects are the element of barrier-free, architectural planning, information technology and operation. Based on the analysis of overseas examples, the good circumstance for both the disabled and the elder as one of member in the local societies could be defined like the following conditions: that is, (1) IT technology facilitates both barrier-free architecture and life to be easier and safer, and (2) both the disabled and the elder in local societies live together with the non-disabled in the same community. To realize this purpose, for a short-term plan, the system of feedback, examining the results of the research through the examples of housing plan, should be improved. In addition to, the system of public service, such as introducing the institutes for social educations, should be developed to result in the change of social insight. For a long-term plan, the whole society should have the research and plan of the unified model in a dimension of cities, where the network of public welfare is deeply associated with the system of the architecture, traffic, streets, and living- supporting information.

    서지원 , KIM KWANG HO | 2009, 15(2) | pp.31~38 | number of Cited : 1
    The purpose of this study is to research the fundamental cause of psychological stress and healing elements related to the waterscape design of contemporary architecture. As one of the solution, analysis of the psychological function of waterscape of natural elements in composition of architectural space was included. This study is focused on the form and psychological function of waterscape, and concerned with the cause of psychological stress at the same time. Also, this study includes analyzed cases with both inside and outside of contemporary architecture. The result will show that the waterscape will be useful solution for healing of fundamental cause of psychological stress with sixteen psychological healing elements through compositional elements of waterscape,

    A Study on the Ward Planning in the Remodeling Process of General Hospitals in Korea

    김상복 , Yang, Nae-won | 2009, 15(2) | pp.39~50 | number of Cited : 1
    The purpose of this study is a presentation of long term strategies for hereafter hospital's remodeling and new constructions with grabbing in the characters of various spaces and ways of remodeling on wards which have been remodeled according to periods (the opening, before remodeling, after remodeling, new construction). The targets are three remodeled hospitals and four resent hospitals. And also the hospitals are divided as beds, additional hospital facilities, day room, doctor's and staff dining room, public space(corridor, core, duct) etc. The analEis of this study explains changes of wards through the characters expressed by remodeling on the specific functions (beds, additional hospital facilities, day room, doctor's and staff dining room, public space etc.) Following the research, the study has kept going to understanding of problems and limitations of improvement on remodeling wards.

    The purpose of this study is to define the concept of sustainability, to understand the traditional belief system, to comprehend user-focused healing environment, to understand the current status of Korean hospitals, to analyze the selected case studies, and to point the way toward enhanced architectural solutions for healing environment in hospitals. The research results indicate that the design of healthcare facilities with healing effects depend on the considerations of 5 senses of patients. In other words, the sustainable design approach to create a healthy healing environment is very important, and architects must be aware of diverse sensory needs of the patients. In addition, the following factors affecting healthcare facilities must be considered to create healing environment for users: - "Emphasis on Sustainable Design" for harmony among nature, man, and building. - Creation of user Focused Healing Environment reflecting the users' senses. - Search for New Hospital Forms through various design experiments to create the most suitable healing environment. - "Perception of Paradigm Shift"from a focus on sickness-oriented to wellness-oriented healthcare facility design. - "Awareness of Creating User-Friendly Environment“ covering the entire age group from youth to elderly.
