Last week’s HEALTHCARE DESIGN poll question asked:

Has the influx of evidence-based design (EBD) information made designing facilities easier or more difficult (sometimes contradicting your original design philosophy)?

35.29% – EBD helps us quickly and efficiently design quality interior spaces

58.82% – EBD can sometimes contradict our original design, forcing us to rethink the space

5.88% – We rarely, if ever, follow EBD practices consciously


A poorly worded question. Rethinking design concepts to conform with EBD is not more difficult, its the right thing to do.
