You are invited to a generative space workshop with practical take-aways, presented by Dr. Wayne Ruga FAIA, FIIDA, Hon. FASID, founder and president of the CARITAS Project.

All commercial design projects, including Health and Healthcare, are created in service of an organizational aspiration. Translating this aspiration into a place that enables and supports the aspiration, continuously and increasingly, is the business imperative that our clients seek. Generative Space is an innovative and practical method that aligns design with these aspirations for unprecedented performance and outcomes. Since 2003, when Dr. Ruga defined and developed Generative Space as a design method, he has worked with individuals and organizations around the world to teach the method and document outcomes. In addition, the annual Generative Space Award spotlights and documents those exemplary projects that are harnessing this method to improve their performance. In this workshop, Dr. Ruga will feature those practical elements of the Generative Space method that will enable participants to approach their designs with new eyes and understandings to enable more advanced and effective design performance.

Wayne Ruga, PhD FAIA, FIIDA, Hon. FASID, founder and president of The CARITAS Project, is a formally trained healthcare architect, designer and planner with almost 50 years of experience. As founder of the Healthcare Facilities Symposium and Expo, The Center for Health Design and The CARITAS Project, Dr. Ruga has been a global vanguard for design innovation. For the past 20 years, his work with the CARITAS project has pioneered the Generative Space method as the means to rebalance ‘care’ in the delivery of healthcare, as a vital organizational strategy to transform performance and outcomes. Dr. Ruga has received numerous awards, distinctions and honor; given lectures, seminars and workshops at leading universities and professional meetings around the world, and is the author of scores of published articles.
