- Project Title
- Thesis work by Ruoqi Li from the 2017 Palliative Care Design Studio
- Ruoqi Li’s 'Design for the experience of lying in bed' takes a whimsical approach to the current focus on patient centred care. In observing that patients spend most of their time lying down, Li asked shouldn’t the hospital be re-orientated – by ninety degrees to be exact – to prioritise the view from the pillow? His project identified a number of hospital spaces where the horizontal body could be prioritized over the vertical to visually enrich the patient experience.
This was one of sixteen projects from a studio run by McLaughlan and Anthony Clarke at the Melbourne School of Design in 2017.
