Hamilton, Shepley pen new book
about critical care facility design


A new book by two architecture professors at Texas A&M, detailing best practices in intensive care facility design, has been published by Architectural Press.

"Design for Critical Care: An Evidence-Based Approach," was written by Kirk Hamilton, associate professor of architecture, and Mardelle Shepley, professor of architecture and director of the university's Center for Health Systems & Design.

"By making the connection between research evidence and design practice, Hamilton and Shepley present a holistic approach that outlines the future for successful design for critical care settings," according to the publisher's cover notes. It's a thorough and insightful guide, the notes continue, focusing on design that has been successful and beneficial to both hospital staff and hospital patients.

An American Institute of Architecture - American College of Healthcare Architects Fellow, Hamilton joined the Texas A&M faculty in 2004. He's interested in evidence-based design for healthcare and the relationship of facility design to organizational performance.

Shepley, holder of the William M. Peña Endowed Professorship in Information Management at Texas A&M, joined the Aggie faculty in 1993. She specializes in architectural design, social architecture, health care facility design, applied research, and environmental psychology.

The book is available at www.amazon.com.
