Innovations in Transportable Healthcare Architecture


Innovations in Transportable Healthcare Architecture is the first book to examine the ways that healthcare architecture can provide better assistance in disaster-stricken communities.

Aimed at architects and other professionals working across the disaster relief sector, it provides:

  • An overview of the need for rapid response healthcare facilities;
  • Global case studies which demonstrate real examples;
  • Historical perspectives on redeployables used in past military and civilian contexts;
  • Analysis of the advantages, challenges, and opportunities associated with offsite, premanufactured healthcare facilities and their component systems, for permanent installations or reuse on multiple sites;
  • Planning and design considerations for transportable offsite-built healthcare architecture;
  • State-of-the-art research on pop-up clinics, truck-based configurations, ISO container-based outpatient clinical and trauma care centres, and modularized facilities for contemporary military and civilian contexts.

Innovations in Transportable Healthcare Architecture will be an invaluable reference source for architects, disaster mitigation planners, design and engineering practitioners, non-governmental medical aid organizations (NGOs), governmental health ministries, and policy specialists across the spectrum of disciplines engaged in disaster mitigation and the provision of healthcare in medically underserved communities globally.
