    Seminar Content:
    Evidence-based design, or EBD for short, is a field of study that emphasizes the importance of using credible data in order to influence the design process. The approach has become popular in Healthcare Architecture in an effort to improve patient and staff well-being, patient healing process, stress reduction and safety. EBD is a relatively new field of study which borrows terminology and ideas from several disciplines including Enviroinmental Psychology, Architecture, Neuroscience and Behavioral Economics.

    Attendees to this seminar will learn about the history of EBD, how it originated and how the concept can be applied to the building design process. Attendees will learn about the research that went into developing EBD, as well as its goals and expectations. The speaker will also discuss projects that integrated EBD into the design process. Attendees will learn about the state of healthcare, key trends and challenges.

  • CSI Louisville Churchill Downs A Day at the Races
    Fellow CSI Members:

    The Louisville Chapter of CSI is proud to once again host a Day at the Races at Churchill Downs here in Louisville.

    This is an opportunity to enjoy not only the horses; but to also share food, drink, and friendship with other CSI members for other nearby Chapters.

    We cordially invite you and other members of your Chapter to come and join us for a Day at the Races. Full details are provided in the flyer.

    So you have an idea of what a Day at the Races is like, follow this link to some photos taken at last year’s event by Ralph Pittman of the Indianapolis Chapter.

    We would love to see a huge turn out of CSI members from your Chapter on Friday, November 9, 2012 for a Day at the Races.

    Please plan to attend.

    Look forward to seeing in November!
