New approaches to classic ideas — Promoting health and well-being through design.

Inspired by the University of Virginia’s Bicentennial, this event explores the modern implications of Thomas Jefferson and Andrea Palladio’s shared interest in creating a salubrious environment through design – spaces that are both socially and physically healthful and equitable. This program aims to create and foster interdisciplinary conversations about aspects of the salubrious environment, deepen our understanding of healthful and equitable environments, and explore new approaches in training practitioners who shape our environments.

ARCHITECTURE + MEDICINE

Building on existing relationships between the International Renal Research Institute in Vicenza (IRRIV) and the University of Virginia School of Medicine, the UVA School of Architecture’s long-running program in Vicenza, and the architectural linkages between the two regions, this event is the first joint program in architecture and medicine offered by these institutions and organized in collaboration with the University of Padua. It is intended that this event is the first in a series of interdisciplinary events and further collaborations among partners in Veneto and at University of Virginia.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

We are striving for a multi-disciplinary conversation among practitioners, researchers, and students. We invite agriculturalists, architects, biologists, designers, environmentalists, financiers, historians of science, medicine, and the built environment, physicians, physicists, and others interested in this topic to join the conversation.

Universities and other organizations interested in participation or sponsorship opportunities should please contact info@irriv.com to discuss possibilities.

LANGUAGE: The official language of the conference is English. No simultaneous translation will be offered.

REGISTRATION: Pre-Registration is not required, but it does assist us with our planning if you RSVP by April 1.
