Care(ful) Research for Care(ful) Design

The material environment has a significant impact on patients’ wellbeing and therefore on their healing process. Whereas designers, architects and hospital boards are convinced of this impact, they often lack accessible data to gain nuanced insights into patients’ and other users’ spatial experience.

The project aims to transfer experiential user data (video material, pictures, and stories) collected in care environments to designers, architects, product and service designers, manufacturers and hospital boards. Enabling them to use these data should result in the development of spaces, product or services that take into account the rich experiences of patients and other hospital users.
To make the data easily accessible the project investigates which type of (online) platform is most suitable to collect and disclose the available data considering their specific experiential character.
