Tengbom has started a cooperation with ChaImers Architecture through Christine Hammarling receiving an adjunct professorship in healthcare architecture. The inaugural lecture was held on 29 October.
The Centre for Healthcare Architecture (CVA) at Chalmers established a new adjunct professorship in 2013 in order to strengthen healthcare building issues and establish long-term cooperation with key architectural firms within the healthcare sector. Following a long employment process, it was decided that Christine Hammarling, Healthcare Development Director and partner at Tengbom, will be given an adjunct professorship involving 20% of her time. This work includes being active in basic and continuing education for architects, strengthening national and international networks and strengthening and developing knowledge of healthcare architecture.
Christine Hammarling commenting on her new professorship, said:
“It is extremely gratifying to be able to contribute to architectural education and play an active role in key networks that help to create a new and fundamental exchange of knowledge between universities and the architecture and healthcare sectors. It is a challenge to cope with rapid development while at the same time being a leader in this field.”
Tengbom’s CEO, Bo Ringdahl, said:
“This is proof of Tengbom’s leading position within healthcare. We have focused on the healthcare sector for many years and our unique and often award-winning healthcare buildings have also attracted considerable attention. Christine Hammarling has unique, leading-edge expertise in the healthcare sector and will contribute to the further development of this area in a highly positive way.”
