European Congress
Healthcare Planning and Design Perspectives

Day to Day Schedule
Sunday 6th of June
13.00-17.00 hrs. Registration office at the congress venue is open.

13.30-16.30 hrs. Healthcare facilities tours
                 We would like to offer the participants of the congress the opportunity to
                 visit a Dutch healthcare facility in or near Rotterdam. Guided visits are
                 offered to a university hospital, a specialist eye hospital, a mental health
                 facility and housing for the elderly with special care needs. All four are
                 dedicated to using architecture/design/planning strategies for improving the
                 healthcare built environment and patient experiences.

                  There is an additional fee for the tours and space is limited. You can
                  subscribe for a tour with your on-line registration.

1. Erasmus Medical Centre- Rotterdam
                                                        Erasmus MC is the Netherlands’s largest
                                                        university hospital. As well as providing
                                                        complex and last-resort healthcare, the
                                                        Erasmus MC is also the general hospital
                                                        of choice for the people of Rotterdam’s
                                                        inner-city area. Being a university
                                                        hospital, the facility naturally also
                                                        houses extensive education and research
                                                        facilities for students and staff. The
                                                       Erasmus MC is ranked among the top
                                                       20 research institutions worldwide. The
                                                       oldest buildings on its downtown campus
date from the early 1960’s, and the facility has been expanded over time. With approximately
15.000 people visiting the facilities on a daily basis, the campus is effectively a “medical city”
within the city.
A 1 billion euro redevelopment scheme for the existing site was launched in the late 1990’s,
with the aim of renewing all hospital facilities, as well as renovating facilities for education
and research. The new main hospital building has been commissioned and work will have
started when we visit.
The site visit will include a tour of the hospital’s public spaces, an in-depth presentation
detailing the scale and complexity of the site redevelopment project, and a visit to the
research facility (a mock-up of a patient room) that Erasmus MC has set up to determine how
best to create a patient and personnel friendly environment in the new hospital building.

2. Eye Hospital- Rotterdam
                                                      The only specialized hospital of its kind
                                                      in the Netherlands, the Rotterdam Eye
                                                      Hospital is a “centre of excellence”,
                                                      delivering highly specialized ophthalmic
                                                      care. Standards for care delivery, training
                                                      and research are set and assessed in           Kunsthal Rotterdam, by Rem Koolhaas
                                                      accordance with the exacting criteria of
                                                      the American Association of Eye and Ear
                                                      Hospitals. More than 11.500 operations
                                                      are carried out annually and 140.000
                                                      patients visit the outpatients department.

                                              Extensive refurbishment and extension of the hospital’s buildings was completed in 2005.
                                              The hospital’s interior design – including the application of art – is specifically aimed at
                                              reducing stress and anxiety in patients. This is a particularly pressing problem for patients
                                              of the hospital, as threatened loss of eyesight can be a very traumatic experience. Levels of
                                              attendant stress and anxiety in patients can be reduced by aiming for maximum transparency
                                              in design. For instance, the formerly gloomy inner courtyard is now a glass-domed interior
                                              garden with glass-fronted facades. To reduce anxiety about surgical procedures – particularly
                                              common among ophthalmology patients – procedures are televised “live” on screens in
                                              waiting areas. Art is everywhere in the hospital, all of it dealing in some way with the themes
                                              of “eyes” and “sight”.
                                              You will have the opportunity to visit all of the hospital and hear everything about the use of
                                              architecture, art, the redevelopment process, stress and anxiety reduction and transparency.

                                              3. Delta Psychiatric Hospital

                                                                                                    century or so. The Blaak building is a

                                                                                                    confinement in patients are alleviated by
                                              the building’s typically open architectural design The Blaak’s external façade, for instance, is
                                              composed of natural materials which harmonize with the wooded surroundings.
                                              Another interesting building on site is the “Greenhouse”, a building housing workshops for
                                              patients. However, the site’s most distinguishing feature is its park, which offers a peaceful
                                              and protective haven for the long-term psychiatric patients living on-site. The park is unique
                                              in the Netherlands for this type of clinic.

                                              Various initiatives were adopted by other cities and then fitted in the national policy. True
                                              examples of this are the Humanitas-Bergweg and Humanitas-Akropolis, projects that were
                                              developed by Humanitas.
                                              The basic philosophy Humanitas adopts in their organizations and buildings in a nutshell are:
                                              •	 Rigorous	separation	between	housing	and	care:	from	care	to	housing.
                                              •	 De-institutionalization:	from	intramural	to	sublimated	home	care.
                                              •	 Mixed	occupation:	rich	and	poor,	sick	and	in	good	health,	young	and	old,	migrant	and		
European Congress                             •	 No	separation	from	partner.
Healthcare Planning and Design Perspectives   •	 ‘Use	it	or	lose	it’;	the	care	is	strictly	suitable	and	advising;	too	much	care	is	worse	than	too		
                                                 little care.
•	 ‘Give	a	hand	with	your	hands	on	your	back’:	stimulate	independence	and	self-reliance	(up		
   to pain threshold);
•	 Corporate	yes-culture:	meetings	cost	money,	enthusiasm	produces	money.

At Sunday afternoon, it is possible to visit one of their exemplary buildings in Rotterdam.

17.00-19.00 hrs. Archiguides Architectural bike tour of Rotterdam
                 Take a tour of Rotterdam’s architectural highlights. There’s lots of them,
                 so you’ll need a bike to see them all! This tour will take you past some
                 of the most exciting recent building projects, focusing on the banks of the
                 river New Meuse, which have proved to be fertile ground for great
                 architecture. On the south bank we will visit the large-scale docklands
                 redevelopment known as the “Head of the South” which has breathed new
                 and vibrant life into a part of the city that had become derelict when
                 harbour activities were moved outside the city limits. Crossing Ben van
                 Berkel’s elegant Erasmus bridge, the tour also showcases buildings by Renzo
                 Piano, Peter Wilson and Sir Norman Foster, as well as taking a tour of
                 the Rem Koolhaas-designed Museum park, which is also home to Jo Coenen’s
                 Netherlands Architecture Institute.
                 There is an additional fee for the architectural tours. You can subscribe for
                 this tour with your on-line registration.

Speaker Biography; Prof Ton Venhoeven
Ton Venhoeven (1954) is architect/director of VenhoevenCS Architects, Professor
of	Architectural	History	and	Theory	at	the	Technical	University	of	Eindhoven	
and advisor to the national government on infrastructure. The creative team of
VenhoevenCS comes from various cultural backgrounds and forms an ambitious and
innovative office for sustainable architecture, urban planning and infrastructure.
The office’s research focuses on the design of self-supporting cities and emission free
buildings. Cultural and social aspects are of major importance: the C and S in the
name refer to it. Because of their broad experience and expertise, VenhoevenCS is
often invited for complex design projects. VenhoevenCS produces a variety of public
and private works, ranging from housing projects, interior design and utilitarian
buildings to infrastructure, urban design and development research.
VenhoevenCS has conducted several studies on hospital designs in and outside the
Netherlands, and won the 2004 hospital design competition ‘Future hospitals: competitive
and healing’, commissioned by Bouwcollege with its innovative entry: Core Hospital. As a
direct result Ton Venhoeven is now a member of the supervisory board of the Paul Stradins
University	Hospital	in	Riga	(Latvia).	Currently	VenhoevenCS	is	designing	the	masterplans	for	
GGNET (psychiatric care) and SEIN (Epilepsy centre), as well as a hospital for epilepsy patients
In 2008 Ton Venhoeven was a member of the jury of the international design competition for
the new hospital in Espoo, Finland.
Health care is becoming a more prominent component in projects executed by VenhoevenCS.
The	project	U2	in	Geuzenveld	is	an	example	where	psychiatric	care	facility	for	elderly	
patients are combined with owner-occupied housing and shops. In Forum ‘t Zand a mix of
educational-, childcare-, cultural and social care facilities are combined with a community
healthcare centre. Sportplaza Mercator in Amsterdam combines a therapeutic swimming pool
and a fitness centre and in Leiden-Noord a community school combines education with a
Children’s Centre, housing for the elderly and for people who are cognitively challenged.

                                              Speaker Biography; Thomas Rau, architect
                                              Social and environmental commitment are at the heart of Thomas Rau’s approach to
                                              architecture. Driven by a self-perception based on mutual respect, Thomas Rau closely involves
                                              his clients in the design of their project. Equally, respect for nature, the built environment and
                                              the cultural context are important factors considered in the planning of his projects.
                                              Thomas Rau regards ‘state of the art’ to be merely the starting point for his projects.
                                              Consequently, he initiated the development of the world’s first energy-generating revolving
                                              door,	which	RAU	has	developed	in	co-operation	with	Boon	Edam.	The	head	office	of	the	Dutch	
                                              branch of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is CO2-neutral and (almost entirely) self-
                                              sustaining. The body warmth of the people who work in the building is captured and re-used
                                              for heating, birds can breed in nesting boxes in the façade and bats can use the basement as
                                              an extension of their natural habitat.

The practice goes one step further with its latest project, Le Carré de Soie in Lyon. This mixed-
use office complex is not only CO2-neutral and self-sustaining, but does produce more energy
than it needs for its own operation. The surplus of energy is fed into the public grid. Similarly,
Christiaan Huygens College in Eindhoven will be the first CO2-neutral and energy-producing
school in the Netherlands, with estimated annual savings in energy costs of approximately €
Thomas Rau is ranked among the Top 100 Dutch key players in sustainability, a list published
by national newspaper Trouw and broadcasting corporation LLiNK. He is placed at number
one in the ‘Green Building’ category of the Dutch ‘Green.200’ ranking by Green.2 magazine.
Thomas	Rau	studied	fine	arts	and	dance	at	the	Alanus	University	of	Arts	in	Bonn	and	
architecture	at	RWTH	Aachen	University.	He	has	been	working	as	an	architect	in	Amsterdam	
since	1990.	He	established	RAU	in	1992.	The	office	is	working	in	all	areas	of	the	building	
business with a focus on public health and education.

Speaker Biography; Fred Ahsmann, MSc
Drs.	Fred	Ahsmann	MSc	(1956)	graduated	as	art	historian	in	1983	at	the	University	of	Utrecht	
and graduated as Master of Science in Knowledge Engineering in 1993 at the Middlesex
University	in	London.	He	is	currently	leading	a	group	of	ICT	Solution	Architects	within	
Siemens IT Solutions and Services. One of the key products this group is a generic ICT-
reference architecture for the Healthcare, called ITAH (ICT Architecture for Healthcare). ITAH
provides a framework that hospital organizations can use to quickly establish a ICT reference
architecture for a digital hospital, in which the primary care and cure processes depend on
reliable and performant ICT-solutions. The framework offers a methodical way to establish a
roadmap for transforming a current As-Is to the required To-Be situation.
Fred Ahsmann was involved as responsible program manager in the design phase of the ICT-
infrastructure for the Orbis Medical Centre. The architectural design of this hospital, which
opened its doors in January 2009, was based on a visionary ambition, taking full advantage
of the capabilities that architecture and information technologies offer today to redesign
classical way of delivering healthcare into a what is called ‘New Way of Working’. During the
design phase the architecture and the elaboration for the core ICT-Services was established.
At this moment Fred Ahsmann is working as the responsible program manager for the ICT-
innovation at the HagaZiekenhuis in The Hague. This hospital is planning to renovate the
existing hospital buildings and at the same time redesigning its hospital processes in a radical
way, based on the Planetree concept. The ICT-innovation program, which is based on the ITAH-
reference architecture, is a crucial cornerstone for this innovation program.
In his presentation, Fred Ahsmann will elaborate on the relationship between hospital
architecture, healthcare processes and the ICT-domain. He will demonstrate how these three
areas depend on each other and that at the conception of new physical hospital a clear vision
and ambition not only on the hospital processes, but also on the ICT-platform is crucial for a
successful completion.

The state of the art of Dutch hospital designs
and various international case studies have
been analysed and tested with this method

by expressing these items in terms of the

to address various international trends in

The Masterclass will be given by Sjoerd de
