This month’s AIA Los Angeles Healthcare Committee will feature three presentations from Cal Poly Pomona’s Healthcare and Environmental Architecture Leadership (HEAL) program, the USC School of Architecture Health Care design graduate studio, and Woodbury University Architecture and Interior Design. This is a great opportunity to engage with students on their real world local projects.
I) Cal Poly Pomona’s Healthcare and Environmental Architecture Leadership (HEAL) program prepares next generation architects to meet the challenges of advanced technology and construction sustainability in healthcare. Hofu Wu, Arch.D, FAIA, HFAIT, LEED-AP, Professor of Architecture and Cal Poly Pomona’s Director of the Environmental Design Technology Unit, taught the Fall 2021 Healthcare Studio
II) The USC School of Architecture continued its fourth year with a formal graduate presence of healthcare design.This program combines the rapidly changing world of healthcare medicine, housing design for the frail//vulnerable, and the complications created from COVID-19. It consists skilled nursing units, affordable housing for age 55+, a neighborhood outpatient clinic and exercise facility with a landscape connection to the community.
III) Woodbury School of Architecture is distinguished by a broad range of degrees that address the needs, values, and potential of the built environment. These programs combine to create a holistic school dedicated to advancing the practices of design, the products of design, and the impact of design towards a more equitable and sustainable world. While this program doesn’t have a healthcare specific path, students still demonstrate their interest in adjacent studies.
