Designing Together Symposium
In December 2015, the DHW lab held the Designing Together Symposium.
We want to understand what is important to you in Auckland City Hospital and how we can help improve your experience through design. We’re asking for your help to find out what you see as the opportunities, barriers, and overall value of Design in Health looking forward to 2020. With your help we want to ensure a coherent, patient-centred approach for the Design for Health and Wellbeing Lab, and pave the way for better experiences at Auckland City Hospital.
The symposium was inspirational for all that attended, and the lab would like to extend its thanks to all the speakers - and all the participants who helped make this happen. The second event of the day consisted of a DHW Lab open home. The lab exhibited some of its more recent design projects and both staff and students were available to talk through their work.
