Over the years, hospitals, psychiatric institutions and hospice facilities for the elderly have been subject to radical change. To a great extent, these buildings--their amenities and accommodations--have been shaped by developments in medicine and government, shifts in societal and patient perceptions, as well as evolution in architectural ideologies and theories. Healthcare Architecture in the Netherlands describes the historical evolution of industry-specific design in the healthcare arena, providing a detailed chronological overview from the emergence of healthcare architecture as its own genre within architectural practice to the most recent innovative complexes. It also features approximately 50 buildings from the last 150 years, with illustrations and detailed descriptions, plus a series of texts that addresses aspects of national and international architecture of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries in relation to the health care sector.
