(applications due December 31, 2012; posting open until February 1, 2012)
"The University of Virginia School of Architecture Foundation has received a $2 million gift to establish a cross-disciplinary professorship in design and health.
The Mary Irene DeShong Professorship in Design and Health at the School of Architecture was established by two anonymous donors to support the mission of the school’s Center for Design and Health, launched in May 2011, and to foster a new curriculum centered on design and health within the school. The center is believed to be the only research center in the U.S. that focuses on a variety of health issues across a wide range of scales and regions as well as the design and planning of patient-centered health care facilities, healing gardens and learning centers."
