This case study of the Evidence-Based Design process of the Dublin Methodist Hospital in Ohio USA describes how a conscious design process in which the client continuously asks for the best available evidence for each important design decision created a hospital that fits architecturally and culturally into the community; reduces feelings of fear and intimidation on arrival; provides a clear and simple wayfinding system and; empowers patients and family with a sense of control in a restorative environment.
