For the past two years Metropolis’ publisher and editor in chief Susan S. Szenasy has been leading a series of discussions with industry leaders on key issues surrounding human-centered design. On April 13, 2016 she talked to HMC Architects in Los Angeles about how contractor-integrated design is reviving the healthcare industry by enabling owners to reduce construction costs and spend the savings where it counts most: on better care for patients, streamlined work environments, and beautiful hospitals that communities can be proud of.
