that encourage hanging

A strict

nurses' station
model. I talk to nurses
who lament that it
completely ignores the
social support system
integral to the nursing
profession.

PEN AND/OR NOTEBOOK FOR
SKETCHING
CO recycles old drawing sets into notebooks. I love them
because they're abundant and green, and sometimes I'll
see an old project of mine on the other side.
VA C AT I O N S P O T With a 4-year-old and 6-yearold, our favorite vacation spot is Hawaii. We love
seeing the lava tubes and volcano at the Big Island
and swimming in the calm, clear waters of Kauai.
I'd love to travel more internationally with my family
when they're a little older.
PIECE OF ART IN YOUR HOUSE
Bamboo standup paddleboard
hanging on the wall
in my kids' playroom.
It's beautiful and
reminds me of the
weekend.
TV CHARACTER
Dr. Gregory House
from "House." It's a
total stereotype of
a genius diagnostician with a God complex, which
I shouldn't support, but he's my all-time favorite
character on TV.
WAY T O U N W I N D A F T E R A L O N G D AY A
little wine, watching Food Network, and snuggling
with my kids.
W E E K E N D A C T I V I T Y Summers are my favorite
because I love the California beach life on weekends.
My son Max and I cold-press some juice or the
family gets a big breakfast together, then we head
over to the beach. We watch the waves and build
sandcastles. I stand-up paddleboard, which reminds
me that the ocean is a much deeper abyss than the
paperwork on my desk.

GINA CHANG

Associate principal,
CO Architects

ARCHITECT GINA CHANG says she's
learned more about healthcare
operations in the past three years
than in the 13 before that, thanks to
time spent working on high-acuity outpatient
projects rather than her usual inpatient work.
The difference? On general hospital projects,
decisions are often determined by regulations.
"You spend more time discussing the specifics
of the patient types, the logistics of how they get
in and out, and juggling differing opinions from
the organization about levels of acute care,"
says Chang, who joined CO Architects (Los Angeles) in 2007. Her busy schedule has included
a variety of projects, including the University
of California San Diego Health System Outpatient Pavilion, Kaiser Permanente Irwindale
Specialty MOB, and UCLA Women's Health
Center. But whether focused on inpatient or
outpatient facility design, she says her favorite
part of working in healthcare is digging deep
into complex operational and technical issues
and coming out with a simple and beautiful solution. "I'm a nerdy problem solver who loves to
mull over a problem until I have that 'aha' moment," she says. "It's a rush!"-Anne DiNardo

REM KOOLHAAS
Sometimes I feel like Alice in Wonderland in his buildings,
like he designed these incredibly cool spaces to take
people on a journey. It reminds me that architecture-even
healthcare architecture-can, and should, be fun, cool,
and whimsical at times. It's made for people, and people
at their core like to feel happy and curious.

THREE WORDS MY CO-WORKERS

BIGGEST PET PEEVE ON A PROJECT

form of communication,
focus, and understanding. And it's fun and creative.

THREE ITEMS ON MY DESK

2 old granola bar wrappers
3 a photo of my kids somewhere
( I'm not a neat desk keeper.)

The ones that deal with people's expectations and
emotions. Every person sees solutions differently,
and solving problems is not simply black and white.
I've learned to be a good listener and remain open,
transparent, and honest. After that, it comes down to a
couple humans solving a problem together.

a collaborative work

of all team members
