He is the author of several journal articles, books and book chapters on healthcare architecture and landscape architecture.

The competition seeks conceptual ideas exploring health design innovation. It offers a chance for participants to explore how architecture can be used as a tool to help people, and demonstrate how architecture can offer psychological relief to those who are suffering.
