Prestigious posters

Student work garners elite
healthcare engineer audience



The American Society for Healthcare Engineering invited students from the Department of Architecture’s health facility design studios to exhibit 16 posters featuring recent work at the organization’s 2006 International Conference and Exhibition on Health Facility Planning, Design and Construction held Feb. 25-28 in San Diego, Calif.

Theirs was the only student exhibit at the conference and it was shown alongside projects designed by many of the nation’s leading architectural firms. The posters were chosen by George J. Mann, the Ronald L. Skaggs Professor for Health Facility Design.

The conference also featured two presentations by Department of Architecture faculty and students.

Mardelle Shepley, interim head of the Department of Architecture and director of the College of Architecture’s Center for Health Systems and Design (CHSD), and Elizabeth Viets, a master of architecture student, presented “Post-Occupancy Evaluation of the Critical Care Unit and Emergency Department at Grossmont Hospital.” Kirk Hamilton, a CHSD faculty fellow, lectured on “How the Icons Have Fared III: New Lessons Learned.”
