‘FleXX Hospital: Pandemic Resilience’
Dan Flower, Design Director & Sophie Crocker, Architect & Health Researcher, HKS Architects
Using real-world findings from the COVID-19 pandemic, the ‘FleXX hospital: surge scenario’ report is based on learnings from rapid adaptations that have been made to facilities in the UK and US during this pandemic.
The FleXX hospital principles aim to create flexible facilities that enable day-to-day operations to continue alongside a pandemic or other emergency scenario and reduce the negative impacts on wider public health.
In this presentation we will discuss the principles of designing for pandemic resilience and how these principles can also enable greater ease of change over the lifetime of a facility.
The cost benefit analysis of deigning with the FleXX principles will also be discussed.
