Some YouTube Fare: Architecture Art and Malkin's New Book
While setting up an HCD YouTube page to host a couple videos for news and blogs here on the site, I came across this moving piece of video art. It's a video rendering using architect Raimund Abraham’s Hospital drawings and poems. I expect that this video portrays exactly how designers don’t want to make patients feel.
It’s put together by a Yale student (I think), named Tom, alias except10n (his video montage of architecture students at theYale School of Architecture is worth a look if you’re in the mood for a laugh).
Also, while we’re on YouTube, The Center for Health Design has updated their YouTube page with a number of videos featuring Jain Malkin chatting about her new book,
A Visual Reference for Evidence-Based Design. Here’s one of them, but definitely go over to
