hello, i'm doing a thesis on a hospital with a 'healthy building' concept. we all know that people go to hospitals to get better, not get worse. sadly and ironically, most hospitals are 'sick', having the wrong materials, orientation, lighting, etc...i want to veer away from the traditonal design and make something, not only healthy in itself, but also friendly to the environment. also, i'd like to have some information about how nature can make a building healthy. can someone give me some inputs/facts please? thanks!
