CFH2a KIT - Architectures for a post antibiotic age: the codesign of an exhibition

Project: Other projectOther internal award

Project Details


Working collaboratively with the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design (HHCD) at the Royal College of Art (RCA), we will stage an exhibition to raise awareness about the interconnectedness of building design and infection, and to create a space for dialogue between designers, architects, clinicians, patients and healthcare managers. Using innovative inclusive design methodologies, this interactive event will be staged in 2019 at the RCA Design Festival in London, and at one of the partner NHS Trusts in our AHRC funded project: 'Pathways, Practices and Architectures: Containing Antimicrobial Resistance in the Cystic Fibrosis Clinic (PARC)'. The exhibition, 'Healthcare architecture in the preantibiotic, antibiotic, and postantibiotic ages' will use in situ and virtual media to ensure inclusive access for patients, including those with Cystic Fibrosis. It will also be used as input into our participatory codesign workshops within CF clinics. Exhibition interactive resources will be designed so that they are available for CPD of architects beyond the life of the project.
