Join Christine Binswanger, architect and Senior Partner at Herzog & de Meuron; healthcare expert and former hospital director Henrik Schødts; and professor of surgical education Dr. Roger Kneebone for a discussion about the power of design to improve healthcare environments.

Irrespective of the specific form, Herzog & de Meuron extend the concept of the hospital as a purely medical tool to include comfort and livability, creating a place of holistic healing. The discussion will focus on several projects—REHAB Basel, a clinic for neurorehabilitation and paraplegiology; the New North Zealand Hospital in Hillerød, Denmark, currently under construction; and the soon-to-be-completed children’s hospital Zurich, among others.

In all projects, Herzog & de Meuron have expanded ways of thinking about how architecture can contribute to health. They have created institutions that are at the same time pleasant environments and highly functional for medical and non-medical professionals. REHAB and Universitäts-Kinderspital Zurich are both featured in our Herzog & de Meuron exhibition.
