Landscape Design in Hospital Gardens: The Example of Selcuk University Medical Faculty Hospital

Authors

Abstract

Hospital gardens, located in urban open-green areas, are places created for patients who come to the hospital, their relatives and staff working in the hospital to spend time in an environment where they can renew themselves. The importance of these places is increasing day by day. The aim of this study is to examine the garden of the Selcuk University Faculty of Medicine hospital, located in Selcuk University Alaeddin Keykubad Campus, in accordance with the principles of landscape design. The main material of the research is the garden of the Selcuk University Medical Faculty hospital located in the Selcuklu district of Konya province. The findings show that the examined hospital garden was not designed exactly in accordance with the landscape design principles. With the suggestions developed, this hospital garden can be redesigned in accordance with the landscape design principles and can be made more comfortable for the people who use the hospital garden.
