AIA Indianapolis Highlights Healthcare Architecture

Through partnerships like the AIA’s Decade of Design collaboration with the Clinton Global initiative, the AIA is committed to demonstrating that the design of places is inherently tied to the health and well-being of the people that inhabit them, and nowhere is this more true that in healthcare facilities. The projects recognized in AIA Indianapolis’ latest design awards offer hospitals to heal in, assisted living facilities to grow old in, and lab classrooms for the next generation of healthcare professionals to learn in.
