Designing dying well: Towards a new approach to the design of palliative care environments for the terminally ill

In April 2018 she began her PhD research at the Welsh School of Architecture, drawing upon her previous research, entitled “Designing dying well:towards a new approach to the design of palliative care environments for the terminally ill’.

The study seeks to instigate a multi-disciplinary dialogue between the architecture of hospice environments and sociological studies of palliative care and the terminally ill. This research will audit and explore the operational needs of a hospice alongside the emotional and environmental needs of the service users; the key design principles and strategies, priorities and hierarchies in order to establish a socio-geographic understanding of an environment, where those go to die, thus far not understood nor challenged.
