Healthcare Architecture in the Netherlands

Text by Noor Mens, Cor Wagenaar.

"De Plussenburgh combines two topical architectural and urban development assignments: urban renewal in a postwar distract, and the implementation of housing for the elderly close to facilities and public transport…<br>The design is based on the fact that those aged 55 or more today formed the hippie generation in the 1960s. That explains the strikingly hip building with panels to which two hundred different colours have been applied."<p>Caption and image both from <a href="9789056627348.html">Healthcare Architecture in the Netherlands</a>.Over the years, hospitals, psychiatric institutions and hospice facilities for the elderly have been subject to radical change. To a great extent, these buildings--their amenities and accommodations--have been shaped by developments in medicine and government, shifts in societal and patient perceptions, as well as evolution in architectural ideologies and theories. Healthcare Architecture in the Netherlands describes the historical evolution of industry-specific design in the healthcare arena, providing a detailed chronological overview from the emergence of healthcare architecture as its own genre within architectural practice to the most recent innovative complexes. It also features approximately 50 buildings from the last 150 years, with illustrations and detailed descriptions, plus a series of texts that addresses aspects of national and international architecture of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries in relation to the health care sector.

The design is based on the fact that those aged 55 or more today formed the hippie generation in the 1960s. That explains the strikingly hip building with panels to which two hundred different colours have been applied."

FROM THE BOOK
"These buildings tell a story, and health care plays an important role in that story. Nevertheless, the protagonist is architecture. Architecture is particularly significant in health care--it reflects developments in care, the ensemble of buildings can be read as a documentary journal of medico-technological innovations, changing insights in psychiatry, and socio-cultural opinions on the position of old people. Much more important is the fact that architecture is directly connected with the raison d'etre of these buildings. These is no type of building in which the relation between function, structure and design is revealed so clearly as in health care architecture, and nowhere is the relation between buildings and the physical and mental wellbeing of the people for whom they are designed so intense. This is true not only of the patients and elderly in need of care, and also the staff--the doctors, psychiatrists and psychologists, nurses and technical staff without whom these buildings cannot function. This book is in the first place a plea for the (re)discovery of this quality of architecture, a quality that coincides with the essence of architecture."

Frans C.A. Jaspers, excerpted from his preface to Healthcare Architecture in the Netherlands.
