Art, society and medicine: Architecture as medicine
Presented in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Arts

Wednesday 29 January, 6.00pm
Royal Society of Medicine, London
Free evening lecture

New to 2014, the RSM is delighted to announce a new public lecture series “Art, society and medicine”, presented in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Arts. Free to attend, the inaugural lecture “Architecture as medicine” will be given by Sunand Prasad, Senior Partner of architectural practice Penoyre and Prasad, on the design of hospitals.

Sunand has played a central role in the design and delivery of the practice's 300 plus projects, many of them of health care buildings. A leading figure in architecture, Sunand has guided CABE’s “Healthy Hospitals” campaign (2005) and reviewed the design of major hospital schemes. He has edited “Changing Hospital Architecture” (2008) and recently chaired the UK Design Council’s Advisory Board on its project to improve A&E departments.

Hospitals have developed so much since the 19th century; there are many new modern hospitals being built which require an intensive collaborative process on the part of the architect. In this lecture, Sunand will explore how architects go about the complex process of designing a hospital that covers all the constituencies involved in delivering health care and running a hospital.

Register now to book your free place for the first lecture in this exciting new series.
