Shuttle service will be provided between the Javits Center, New York Hilton Midtown, and the New School at approximately 10- to 15-minute intervals, Thursday–Friday, 6am–12:30pm. (Shuttle schedule may vary due to traffic and weather conditions.)

In this unique and candid session, the jury of the 2017 AIA/AAH Healthcare Design Awards will walk through all seven 2017 award-winning projects and share details that stood out in both winning and non-winning entries.

Presence, community integration, sustainability, and positive contributions to the environment were key factors in many of the projects this year. If you're interested in how design helps define the clinical model of care, which aspects of design contribute to a patient-centered environment, or how to promote your own design success, this session is for you.

Learning objectives:

  1. Learn about the eligibility requirements for an AIA/AAH Healthcare Design Award.
  2. Gain new insights into the design attributes that successfully contribute to a healing environment in complex healthcare environments.
  3. Reflect on the successful narratives, visual communication, and themes that the jurors find compelling in such contests.
  4. Develop a keen understanding of how to communicate your own design intent and highlight the best aspects of your work.
