Science on the Menu
'THiNK Lunch' held at Oxford Molecular Pathology Institute (OMPI), July 29, 2011
Attended by influential academics and estates personnel from the University of Oxford, the event aimed to explore the future of design in science and research.
Chaired by Adrian Gainer, IBI Nightingale’ Science Practice Lead, and Jonathan Steel, who delivered the OMPI project, the agenda covered THiNK’s ‘4 Labs, 4 Cities’ project and our ‘Science Building Design Assessment Tool’.
The discussion explored a number of burning issues such as ‘productivity’, ‘collaboration’ and ‘energy efficiency’ in the research workplace. It sparked a variety of opinions into how laboratories should be designed to cope with future trends. Ideas included creating generic not flexible space for multi-disciplinary science to allow chemists, biologists and physicists to work together on the same scientific question. Also the group considered how we could design to change the ratio of wet and dry laboratory space to office space, to cope with the emergence of paper-based science. Individuals also challenged our allegiance to design codes by suggesting more technological solutions to reduce energy.
The afternoon concluded with a tour around OMPI to demonstrate the key design features around this leading research facility.
7th World Congress & Exhibition, International Academy for Design & Health
The Marriott Copley Place, Boston, MA, USA July 6-10, 2011
Caroline Paradise, Design Research Co-ordinator, presented a paper entitled ‘Innovative Approaches to In-patient Accommodation’ at the 7th International Academy for Design and Health World Congress in Boston. Using the results of two post occupancy studies reviewing the use of single bedrooms at Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan in Wales, and Nightingale’s innovative four-bed cruciform ward at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital in Guernsey, the paper discussed the merits of both approaches in reducing hospital infections, improving patient dignity and aiding clinical care.
The BedPod was presented as a prefabricated modular solution that could be easily installed into existing or new hospitals. Its component based design offers flexibility of specification allowing estate managers the opportunity to choose the right product for their specific hospital environment.
Mike Nightingale, Founder, and Richard Mazuch, Director of Design Research and Innovation, presented ‘A Holistic Approach to Mental Health’ as part of the Design and Health Showcase. Using a symbiotic approach, the presentation illustrated the components required for physically, psychologically and socially integrating mental health facilities within the local community. Sense sensitive design was presented as a way of enhancing the healing environment. The conference also gave Nightingale the opportunity to raise the profile of THiNK and the practice’s role within the IBI Group.
