Ah, spring. I am grateful to have had four seasons here in Cleveland, for better or worse, and this is my favorite. And even though it’s still young, spring – so far – has been particularly exciting, something I admired in a new way this week when I recovered from my second COVID-19 vaccine (I’m in Camp Pfizer). I was thankful that the cold and pain kept me in bed, allowing me to look out the window at the blue sky and break the window for 60 degrees for a day and to feel some fresh air on my face.
So when I came back to work to complete the production of this case, it was an easy choice to combine our coverage vaccine with the “fresh air” lines, after all what we all want now? One form or another? The project itself is the Marine Health Medical Center Oak Pavilion in Greenbrain, California, which connects the level of biofil design that I rarely see in healthcare. Only indoor / outdoor sunlight is stimulating.
I remember a website where I participated in a virtual neonatal event last June, where I joined some of my editorial staff at Emerald Design Group to share the trends we are seeing in our areas, including the initial impact of COVID. + A is found when we ask if we can find someone who is a major trend in post-epidemic health care. I didn’t think much of it before the website, but my immediate response was, “Yes, I think so.”
At the time, we were taken into an environment where we were fully aware of the impact on our environment and our personal health and well-being – from the physical distance of the person next to us to the cleanliness of space. And we know that access to nature makes us feel good. So it is a good feeling that these two themes may clash in the future.
And using natural materials, combining nature-based arts and even adding to the views are all commendable solutions, I return to the idea of fresh air. After all, we will hear a lot about how this industry will change from a post-epidemic to a modernization of HVC systems, especially for future airborne pathogens – and in a different direction. But what better time to reconsider the long-disputed Windows issue or to reflect on MarinHealth’s strong access to gardens, balconies and terraces?
Although many of us have been vaccinated and to a certain extent, we have a long way to go, especially in health care settings. And the open window or easy access to the compound will be a welcome sight for everyone.
