The ACHA Legacy Award recognizes a health care architecture project that continues to demonstrate superior planning and excellence in design performance over an extended period. This session will announce the 2014 award recipient and provide a case study example of a project that used ground-breaking concepts at the time of its design and has achieved long-term excellence. This session will enable attendees to:
Describe how the original architecture and planning of the award winners' initiative has endured over the life of the project, while remaining flexible to subsequent additions and modifications.
Explain the owners and designers approaches to this project and the resulting architecture applied for its time.
Describe the historical context and the key drivers of this winning project.
Apply the principles used in the winning project for your health care facility's future planning and design.
This session is presented by ACHA.
