Presentation at the 11th Envisioning Architecture Conference. Healthcare space is designed based on representations of activity — such as types, organograms, or workflows — that often do not match the real activities of nurses, doctors, and technicians. This is not necessarily a problem, since activities can adapt to new space, but there is a risk of hindering activity development while operating in unsuitable space. The design of new space can actually be an opportunity for activity development, provided that healthcare activities are able to represent themselves in that process. Activity self-representation has been studied in the design of a medical imaging center and the conclusion is that visualization tools are very important for that. Visualization tools should be easily manipulated by healthcare professionals, and allow shifting the levels of analysis from operations to actions, and from actions to activity. Furthermore, they should allow manipulating activity and space in the same representation.

 Self-Representation in Healthcare Design Frederick van Amstel, PhD Researcher Construction Management & Engineering Dept. p. 507
  • Healthcare design is based on representations of activity... 2Plans for a new Medical Imaging Center.
  • ... that may not match the future activity! 3Plans for a new Medical Imaging Center.
  • Thus, activity subjects are invited to participate in healthcare design. 4Workshop about a new Medical Imaging Center.
  • However, floor plans are very poor to visualize activity. 5Workshop about a new Medical Imaging Center. The patient comes here and wait. Then he takes the fluid and... Wait... I'm not following you!
  • Simulations can do it, but are not good for participation. 6Plans for a new Medical Imaging Center.
  • The knitting game 7Second workshop for a new Medical Imaging Center. Introducing “The knitting game” for self-representation
  • Still not good to adjust activity and space at the same time. 8Second workshop for a new Medical Imaging Center.
  • Criteria for self-representation tools 8Second workshop for a new Medical Imaging Center. • Easy manipulation • Level-shift • Multi-dimensional
