From the Ted Talk by Michael Murphy: Architecture that's built to heal

Unscramble the Blue Letters

That following summer, I was in the back of a Land Rover with a few classmates, bumping over the mountainous hillside of Rwanda. For the next year, I'd be living in Butaro in this old gusouhstee, which was a jail after the genocide. I was there to design and build a new type of hitsopal with Dr. Farmer and his team. If hallways are making patients sicker, what if we could design a hospital that fipls the hallways on the outside, and makes people walk in the exterior? If mechanical systems rarely work, what if we could digesn a hospital that could breathe through natural ventilation, and meanwhile rcuede its enmtnraonevil footprint?
