On health care environment (arkkinen)

Arkkinen disseminates news and topical information on Finnish and foreign reports, articles, books and events dealing with built environments in health care.

Arkkinen is meant for those participating in or making decisions on construction and renovation projects in health care, such as architects, hospital designers, health care professionals and students on these fields.

“Just as the starting point in Alvar Aalto's design was the individual whose privacy and comfort were of central importance, the current field of evidence-based hospital design emulates this focus of the physical setting as therapeutic.” (CMAJ, 2009, Diana Anderson)
