Graphical Methodologies to Support Pre- and Post-Occupancy Evaluations in Health Care Case Study I Bridgepoint Active Health POE Cheryl Atkinson OAA RAIC, Ryerson University (Canada)
Edward Tufte The commonality between science and art is in trying to see profoundly – to develop strategies of seeing and showing.
Architecturally what distinguishes the building are the: Generous extent of window and high quality + variety of views Generous quantity, variety of amenity spaces for patient use Generously scaled double and private rooms Retail facilities and other public spaces to integrate the public A landscape plan and roof terrace designed to integrate the public A clear circulation plan ending in windows for orientation and view
Focus of the architectural study across the three facilities: Areas and proportional differences Organizational patterns of movement and circulation Sectional relationships between spaces inside and out Plan relationships (proximities and adjacencies) Travel distances to various activities and functions Window locations and orientation in the building and site Window proportion, scale, dimension and configuration Material and spatial character
Report Organization: Comparative Building Overview: Graphic Summary Site + Context: Urban, natural, local and larger Building Typology: scale, parti, circulation organization Program + Amenities: quantity, type, and locations Fenestration: Daylighting, view, quantity, configuration Room Data Sheets: Detail visual data summary by space
What is to be sought in designs for the display of information is the clear portrayal of complexity. Not the complication of the simple; rather the task of the designer is to give visual access to the subtle and the difficult – that is, revelation of the complex. Edward Tufte
