Cal Poly Pomona Healthcare Architecture Initiative
Gerry Puchlik and Melinda Lehman are honored to be on the Advisory Board for the Cal Poly Pomona Healthcare Architecture Initiative. On October 24th, Gerry and Melinda, along with Iliana Kolettis and Korina Salas, conducted an afternoon studio session for the healthcare architecture students.
The students were challenged to develop a concept plan, images, and illustrations to convey design intent for an Activity Center for Adolescents and Young Adults with cancer. The students were divided into “firms” and they had less than 4 hours to develop their projects. Demonstrating great teamwork and a good understanding of such healthcare considerations as acoustic control and biophilic design, the “firms” gave impressive presentations of their projects.
