Architects for Health‘s successful Japan 2001 events resulted in establishing a good relationship with the Healthcare Engineering Association of Japan (HEAJ). They invited Architects for Health to provide design exemplars to represent an overview of recent trends in the UK’s healthcare architecture. These where exhibited at the HOSPEX JAPAN 2002 exhibition and their 31st annual conference held in Tokyo from 12 to 15 November 2002.
Following the Exhibition, Architects for Health received the following response from the Healthcare Engineering Association of Japan: “I saw your presentation posters last Friday at JMA and they were excellent. We all believe that the posters will make our exhibition more informative and all participants will find them interesting”.
