What if hospitals were designed and built to promote wellness and not just to fix and cure human beings? Architect Jerry Ong brought this vision into reality in his work.
Little did architect Jerry Ong expect when he first undertook the design of Khoo Teck Puat hospital in Singapore that he would be pioneering brand new approaches, ideas and innovations in the architecture of wellness.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
