  1. 1. Effects of Art and Design on Orientation in Healthcare Architecture : A study of wayfinding and wayshowing in a Swedish hospital setting

    Author : Muna Ibrahim; Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; health-care architecture; hospital design; interior design; public art; wayfinding; orientation; affordance; familiarity; wayshowing; heterogeneity; temporality;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the role of interior design elements, especially artwork, in way-searchers’ wayfinding and orientation in hospital environments. The thesis considers the way-searcher’s background and the impact of cultural belonging, occupation, memories, aesthetic preferences, and language, and the influence that such factors might have on the perception of the hospital environment and its guiding elements.

  2. 2. Multi-agent Systems in Diabetic Health Care

    Author : Peng Zhang; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; diabetic health care; Multi-agent Systems; General Systems Theory; Activity Theory; reactivity; proactivity; social activity; Knowledge Engineering;

    Abstract : This thesis discusses how Multi-agent Systems (MAS) should be designed in the context of diabetic health care. Three fields are touched: computer science, socio-psychology and systems science. Agent Technology is the core technology in the research. READ MORE

  3. 3. Designing Healing. A Conceptual Model for Promoting a Healing Health Care Environment in Tanzania

    Author : Moses Mkony; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : healthcare facilities; system analysis approach; matrix design; Healing environment; vernacular architecture; cultural system.; sociality;

    Abstract : Better health services are a basic human right of approximately 40 million people in Tanzania, calling for an improved architecture of Health Care Facilities (HCFs) so as to provide a healing health care environment that supports wellness as well as diagnosis and treatment. Healing design concepts of medical and architectural researchers are in line with life styles, contemporary architectural styles and social cultural systems in the western world, while in Tanzania, although cultural heritage is emphasized as the backbone of sustainable development, very little effort has been made to incorporate cultural elements and vernacular architecture into contemporary HCF designs.

    Abstract : The Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming the future Internet where most day-to-day devices are connected to the Internet. These devices are often resource constrained and use low-power wireless communication. Hence networks of them are called low-power and lossy networks (LLNs). READ MORE
