If I Had My Way...

... I would design hospitals around quadrangles full of trees and grass and running water. The wards would be single storey with lots of windows- all of which would open- and there would be doors into the gardens- wide enough to wheel a bed through. Every bed would command a view of the world outside and every wall that wasn't glass would be brightly painted and/or display specially commissioned works of art. Ceilings would be reasonably high- and corridors- if we had to have them- as airy and well lit as the wards.It would be a guiding principle that no space should have to be lit by artificial light except on very dark days and at night...
