The Evolution of Asylum Architecture, and the Principles which ought to control Modern Construction

  • R. H. Steen (a1)
Extract

“The recovery of the curable, the improvement of the incurable, the comfort and happiness of all the patients, should steadily be kept in view by the architect from the moment in which he commences his plan.”—Conolly, Construction and Government of Lunatic Asylums, p. 1.

IN the present day the great increase in the number of certified lunatics has raised the question of asylum architecture to one of primary importance. New asylums are being built and planned in all parts of the country, and the managing authorities are keen to provide the best possible accommodation for the suffering ones under their care.
