    • People are “extraordinarily responsive to and articulate about their surroundings.”
    • What can we conclude from this, given the variety of people we serve?
    • Source: Lawson, Bryan. "Healing Architecture: For a long time, we have supposed that good design will improve patient well-being. Now we have figures to prove it. Bryan Lawson reports on how patient treatment and behaviour improved with new architecture. (Theory)." The Architectural Review 211.1261 (2002): 72 +. Academic OneFile. Web. 4 July 2011.
  • 21. Design and readers’ advisory
    • Variety of people = variety of spaces and options
    • Integrate technology everywhere
    • Consider traffic flow and touchpoints
    • Optimize spaces between spaces 1
