Ulrich comments on evidence-based design
at U.S. hospital construction sites in Times


Roger Ulrich, professor of architecture at Texas A&M, was quoted in a May 18 New York Times article detailing how some hospital construction in the U.S. is being affected by evidence-based design.

“Some hospitals are taking evidence-based design seriously,” Ulrich told Times reporter Carol Ann Campbell. “Other institutions use pretty traditional design that pays lip service to the evidence. There may be high style, but the hospital is still noisy. Or the windows are too small to let much light in. There are missed opportunities.”

Ulrich is a faculty Fellow at the Center for Health Systems & Design, part of Texas A&M’s College of Architecture.
