The Academy of Architecture for Health proudly announces the publication of its first year of the Case Study Library on the AIA/AAH website!

Architects, Designers and Planners usually conduct literature reviews, site and facilities tours, and occasionally put together informal “case studies” for their clients and teams to review before beginning a new project. The AIA/AAH Research Initiatives Committee proposes a new and more formal format for these type of informal case studies with the idea that increased rigor will improve the quality of the Case Studies and eventually lead to more detailed POE Studies by researchers.

We started our 2016 efforts with the 2013 UCLA Outpatient Surgery and Cancer Center Project as our Pilot Case Study Project and followed that up with additional case studies utilizing six of the seven 2016 AIA/AAH Healthcare Design Award winners as the first phase of a CASE STUDY formatting project with the goal of “bridging the gap” between research and practice.  Following this pilot phase, the Research Initiatives Committee plans to build a large accessibly online database of these case studies for healthcare architects, designers and planners (along with their clients) to use as a benchmarking tool. We are currently soliciting permission from the respective firms to add the 2013, 2014 and 2015 AIA/AAH Healthcare Design Award winners to our AIA/AAH Case Study Library sometime this year.
