2. Project Context This Chapter covers the list of literature studies (all the research will be listed and briefly described), the project typology (the type of project), and the human factor (describing how the research paper relates and affect humans). 2.1 History of Ideas (literature study) This section presents the related literature and studies after the thorough and in-depth search done by the researcher. This will also present the synthesis of the design, theoretical and conceptual framework to fully understand the research to be done. 2.1.1 Designers’ responsibility toward healthcare spaces 22.214.171.124 Designing for Health: Designer’s responsibility to Patient Health written by Henson, M and Baker, M and Keane, K (2015) In the article ‘Designing for Health: Designers’ Responsibility to Patient Health’, written by Marie Henson, Molly Baker, and Kirsten Keane, Perkins+Will, states that “healthcare designers are fundamentally responsible for providing an enhanced healing environment that focuses on stress reduction, safety, and high-quality indoor spaces for patients, caregivers, and families.” The first step towards reaching this goal is through the material selection that supports healthy environments and allows occupants to heal, recover and prosper in the healthcare environment. (Henson, Baker and Keane 2015) i. Relevance of the study It briefly describes the paper’s question of what are the interior designers’ responsibility towards healthcare design. It also

The paper will begin with a Review of the Research. This section will summarize all the information gathered for this paper. Here the background will be given and the foundation laid for the rest of the report. Next will be the Application of the Research. This is
In this paper, I will graphically design a study to investigate the research question identified in the existing literature review. The
Interior design and architecture are essential, and often overlooked, aspects of everyday life. In modern society people rely on function, durability, and visual appeal when selecting designs for their homes, businesses, and places of leisure. The way that a space is designed influences such things as mood, which, in the case of a business, can impact the productivity of employees and either draw or repel customers. In residential design, the design becomes very personal and, to be considered a successful design, must properly reflect the home owner while at the same time offering some practicality that makes the space livable. An effective design, for any space, must solve some problem, be it function, flexibility, or some other criteria. Simply solving a problem would not please the customer, however, unless it offered some visual appeal. Creating function with style is the real job of any interior designer, and is essential in a content society.
The way I plan on conducting research is through a literary analysis, as I am a high school student with very few resources to gather large amounts of primary data. The types of literature that will be in this paper will include studies, meta-analysis, news articles, and magazine articles. By gathering this information, I will be more equipped to conduct more intensive research in the
But in contemporary society, there is no single definition that covers design completely, or even fields of professional practice as graphic or industrial design that adequetly cover the diversity of ideas and practices as once existed.

Interior design is a profession that is undertaken academically just like other professional careers. It mainly involves the development and imparting of skills, knowledge and attitudes that pertains the activities undertaken in the building and construction industry. The profession of interior designing goes beyond designing how a structure will look because it incorporates environmental issues especially aesthetic value of the structure to be constructed, the ergonomics, local fire codes and besides studying fundamental design issues and practice in the building and construction industry (Guerin & Thompson, 2014). Even though the profession is not as old as some of the established professions, the fact remains that the fundamentals of design
In this assignment students are required to clearly state and introduce their research topic, indicates clearly the two variables of interest, and present the theoretical framework with key variables. The task is also requesting that learners explained the following components linked to their selected subject: the background of the problem, the need for study, and provide the educational and practical significances of the proposed research.
During my years as a student, slipping away to an art museum for a few hours has become a regular, much-needed interlude to my demanding medical studies. This cultural retreat allows me to exercise my active curiosity and experience the creative stimulation I enjoyed throughout my prior career in design and art direction. I can stand in front of a work at length—as an observer, detective, and anthropologist—intrigued by the story captured in the art. As I began my clinical studies, I instinctively approached patient care with a similar intrigue. I found myself not only concerned with the patient’s chief complaint, but also curious about unique values and psychosocial factors contributing to their presentation. I listen to patients in much the
The research findings suggested that the focus on healing environments needed to be primarily focused on interpersonal care, not on the physical environment such as the color of walls or architectural design. Attention to the physical aspects of the environment, while potentially aesthetically comforting, seemed less important than altering the interpersonal aspects of the environment, which is clearly desired by patients. Her first example of the importance of the social environment is that the connection with the nurses is a very important aspect of the patients well being and comfort. Patients prefer caring, nice, friendly, and attentive nurses, to which patients believed that some of their care came from the tenderness of the nurse. Her second example is that the amount of fear a patient experiences is also a big aspect of patient preference and recovery. Patients recalled feeling afraid, alone, and out of control while in the hospital. Patients felt much better while nurses reassured them and made the patient feel
Includes the design of health services that impact the way in which services are given. Some of this involves the numbers and kinds of healthcare staff; the way in which they are put together to provide their services; the many types of building, tools and the range of services offered. As well as the systems of management and accessibility, types of financing and the way in which eligible patients are being helped.
The first article investigates, using a Human Centred Design research approach, the emotional impact on cancer patients within a healthcare environment. (Mullaney, 2012 p 27).
