Abstract

The hospital may no longer be seen as a “health machine” but a complex system where care and training converge, ensuring higher levels of ther-mo-hygrometric and psychological comfort. The paradigm of humanisa-tion, regarding both hospitalisation and collective and social spaces in the hospital, stimulates a wide range of morphological-typological and tech-nological innovations. The present contribution, starting from this scenar-io, proposes both a critical analysis of some emblematic design projects and the specific outcomes of some applied research and case studies de-veloped by the authors.
