The Beautiful Hospital | William Schlein | TEDxGreenville

Passionate about space, environment, ecology and healing, William demonstrates how healing occurs in nature, light, space and architecture in the design of the future hospital.

William (Willy) Schlein is President of Anthrotects Architects, the firm he founded in 2013. He has twenty-four years of experience with complex healthcare buildings, from conceptual programming through post occupancy phases. During his career, William has developed strong relationships with his clients, learning from their experience and knowledge while expanding his healthcare portfolio to serve repeat and new clients. His passion is designing healthcare projects in the context of the patients’ and caregivers’ personal and working cultures–cultures which are unique to each client. Willy’s other passion is building wooden boats, having built seven in “his spare time,” one of which won the Judges Award in the 2012 Georgetown, SC, Wooden Boat Show.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

About TEDx

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.)
