I HAD HOPED in this issue co be able to publ ish part two of "Philip J ohnso n's Texas Connectio ns," the conclusion of the profi le of Texas' favorit e carpe tbagge r architect written by Frank Welch, FAIA. Unfo rtunat ely, lack of space inte r vened. For all tho se who have writte n or called to inquir e: Th e next instajjmenc will run in our July /August issue, come hell or ltigh water. MY INTEREST in the cycles of publi c polic y and private choice rela ted to health care goes back IO years, to when] was working as a researcher for an office in th e Texas House of Rep resentatives (it's now known as the H o use Resea rch Organization). I wrote about th e Texas He alth Faci lities Commjss ion, ch arged with issuing permjts for th e co nstr ucti on of new hospitajs and clini cs, whkh was undergoing Sunset review, and would so on be going out of ex.istence. C learly, the attempt to use gove rnmental regul ato ry power to hold down health -care costs (then incr easing at a rate almo st twice the rate of ge ner al infl ation) had fajle d. Since that time, free-market mechanjsm s are supp ose d to h ave been in place, so that competi tion among provider s should have begun taming the spiral of hea lth -ca re costs. Unfor tun ate ly, this has no t be en the case. Health care cos ts, for the past five yea rs, ha ve bee n increas ing at a rat e three time s faster than th e genera l rate of in flat ion- 14 percent last ye ar. It should be clear by now that the market cannot rely on patients to contro l coses, since patients cannot use price information to make rati o nal judg e men ts ab out health -ca re needs. Instead, it is providers who make th e imp ortant choices, driven by the threat of lawsuit s that stimujat e a hunge r for more and mor e expensive UPCOMING ISSUES : We Invite submissions to Tws ARCHITECT for all our upcoming Issues.

8 Letters Of Competitions and Brokers THANKS for such cogent reporting on the important issue of competitions and brokers (TA Jan/ Feb 1993). So often when l read an :m:iclc on a subjecr of which l have dcmiled first-hand knowledge, l find that the author's view of events, and issue differs from mine. H:wing participated in :i number of architeccuni l selectio ns where the owner is guided by a third party, l felt you did an excellcnc job of focusing on the pros (having a first-time owner guided by those with more experience) as well as the cons of this emerging trend. \Vhile my experience with formal competitions is Limited, I again found your analysis to match my ex'perience. vvhilc there may be pros and cons associated with brol-ers, l'm hard pressed to chink of any benefits in selecting an architect via competition, given how most ore run. As such, I applaud Texas Archiucr's new policy in this area. T find most owners are interested in using brokers and competitions co sdect architects because they lack any ability to differentiate firms. ln that context, it's not surprising that fees get a lot of attention-they can be differentiated. If our profession is going to :1dvocate qualifications-based selection, and we should, then we need to be prepared to present our qualifications in wa)'s that c-.m be differentiated. Generally we don't. You concluded with the example of a firm who questioned having been asked to make presenmtions and proposals co a potential client. \i\'hile I can share the architect's disappointment at not having been selected (we too were unsucct!ssful in the case you cited), I cannot see any reason to resent being asked to present demi led qualifications early in the process rather than later. This is what qualifications-based selection is all about. Until those in the profession cnn do a better job of differentiating themselves to those outside the profession, then brokers and c.ompetitions will see to it for us... and fees will be che preeminent selection cri rerion. Duncn11 T. Fulton, AJA Good Fulto11 & Farrell Dallas J READ with obvious interest )'Our article "Competitions and Brokers" (u/ Jan/Feb 1993). lnasmuch as Th e Staubach Company was mentioned prominently in the article, I found it curious that you neglecred to con met our firm for comment on the process you were describing. Consequently, I thought you might allow me to provide some additional infonnation, which clarifies our role. 8 Texos Architect 5/ I am in agreement with the bulk of your article: More communication between owner and archiu:ct is better; architecn1re has allowed itself to become somewhat "commoditizcd" for some types of work; relationships are changing; there are new players in the process.,\1any of your points are well mken, and we all need to work together to find solutions. However, while I cannot speak for our competitors in the real estate industry, I feel that additional fucts are needed to paint a complete picture of how and why The Staubach Company is involved,virj1 our clients in the selection of architects and interior designers and in other projectmanagement activities. First, there seemed to be an unaddressed question in the article that begged for an an~wer: \ Vhy are third parties involved in helping clients select an architect and in otherwise managing their projects? Speaking for our organization, I can assure you that it is because our clients have asked for help..\iany of chem are relocating from another city or h:1ve nor gone rj1rough the process in years. Often, if they ever had a project-management staff, it is now decimated or no longer exists. An administrative assistant or other person, already with full-time responsibilities, is asked to oversee the project.!this person], hombarded with service pr oviders, needs help in going through an organized selection process. Second, it is not our intent to interfere with communication between architects and clients. On the contrary, we t!ncourage the client to make as much time available as possible in selecting a design firm, reminding them that they will be working with them for a long time and living with their solution for years. Unfortunately, despite our urging, many clients resist participating as fully as you or I might prefer. We work hard to help them and the architects come co an understanding of the client's needs. Th ird, real estate firms have gotten a lot of credit for driving architecrurnl fees clown during a construction-real estate-architecture depression, a national recessionary economr, and much corpomte adversity. I can assure you that 0111 ji!es have been driven down, and there is no intermediary in our selection process. Corporate America has simply gotten tighter, rougher, and smarter, and it affects us all. We encourage a client to look for qualifications and value. Our clients nre generally much more fee-conscious in negotiating architectural agreements than we arc. We agree that unpaid competitions are an inappropriate way to select design professionals. To my knowledge, The Sraubach Company has never been involved in a full-blown design competition, but on two occasions a client requested a limited exercise as 11 means of evaluating the creativity and thought processes of fim1s. On both occasions, we voiced to our clients the very concerns in your article. Very little work was requested, nnd most firms provided more than asked. Assisting our clients in selecting architecrs und interior designers is one of the toughest casks we face. There are many qualified firms, and, try as we may, we can never make all competing firms happy. Through all this, we are committed to serve our client. \i\'e respect and appreciate die architectural and interior design communities. Often, though, what is right to a client or one firm is wrong to another client or another firm. 1 am an architect and very proud to be pare of the profession. l feel like I have a sincere empathy with the problems facing the profession. Unfortunately, architects are no longer perceived as the "master builders" of years past, controlling every aspect of a project. \ Ve have not been unified and have allowed the public to forget, or never know, the value an architect brings to a project. \ Vhen a void exists, it,viii be filled. Architecture is nor alone as a profession living through a changing environment. Many of our corporate clients are fighting to stay profitable, looking for ways to economize and to make their organizations more efficient. \Ve must all change and flex to meet their needs. Thanks for an interesting article, and for allowing me to ~'Press my views. The more we can all communicate and underst:rnd each ot her's needs and problems, the bcner we can all serve our clients. Keep up the good work. Tommy M. Parrett, AIA I 7ce Prrsidmr.

17 consideration were prepared in-house at P&D. At the time, then-nlayor Kathy Whitmire 111d zouiug's proponents claijned they were looking for "Housron-sryle" zoning, a goal that w;1~ never clearly defined. The opportunily w:1s ccrrninly :it hand to investigate a prime example of the millennial American city and to create a vision for its furure. The problem, according to proponents of planning, is that zoning alone cnnnot imagine nor fashion that kind of vision. ZoniJ,g alone will not affect crime, traffic, pollmion, or rhe ocher big picmre problems that pl:inning is designed to address, they say. The zoning proposal that has been developed 11111y indeed b}' "Houston-style," for its,nuch-touce d apparent simplicity is w,ique. t;n :lvc types of zoning districts have been set up to categorize all 600 square miles of Houston. Opponents say that the mapping simply documents what is already in place, elms fossil- 11ing the starus quo. There are only four residential zones, for example, compared with Ausliu, which has 12, and Dallas with 17. 'vvhat at lir) I seems to be a refreshjng change from the 1M11tl bureaucratic prolixity may actually invite problems, however.

The Sid 'vv. Richnrtlscm Foundation will cono ibute $ I 8 million w :m arcs-center fund, Bass announced in l:ite,\ larch. ln addition, Bass's father, Perry R. Bass, \\ ill donate the tf0,000-square-foot downrown ~ilc, currently a parking lor, on which the multi-use cent er will be bui lt. The Aune Burnett and Charles Tandy Foundation has pledged an additional $10 million. Current esti mates, according ro tl1e Fon Wo11b Srnr-Telcff/"/ 111, call for the t0tal cost to be $50 million, including a $5 million operating endowment; 1hc remainin g $22 million is to be raised 1hrough public donations, Bass said. No public money is to be used for the project. The proposed 1,800-seat hall will be designed by David M. Schwarz Arcllitecmral Services of Washington, D.C., teamed with Montrose, :1 75xl00 lot in Sh:irpstown, or a half-acre in River Oaks. These uniform rules disregard the complex mix that Houston has evolved in favor of a low-density suburban ideal. Surprisingly, organized :ind infonned criticism of the ordinance has not developed with enough voice ro slow down the hurried process. Concern about the lack of pl:mning, which proponenu. say would give some reason anti direction co the i.oning process, h.is been ignored.,is has been the advice of Hou ston's architects who have experience with zoning in other ciries. Supporters claim th:1t uming will m:ike land use predjccablc and will foster development, because investors will be confident about surrounding land uses. But iri s possible tl1ac restrictions on land uses imposed by zoning may acrually limit growth; chose limitations and the increased bureaucracy may raise the cost of what does get buijc. Petitions are now circulating that will likely force a referendum that could result in repeal of rhe zoning ordinance, perhaps by as early as this fall. In the meantime, tl,e uncertainty will continu e as the implications or the proposed regulations soak in.

29 Technology and Access: Health Core Architecture for the 1990s American health care, envied around the world for its ceaseless technological innovation, has become the victim of its own success. Ever more sophisticated diagnostic equipment and treatment regimens have made it possib.le to save more lives than ever before, but at a cost that threatens to choke off access to the system for millions and to bankrupt local, state, and federal governments and private industry. Solving the crisis in healthcare costs, now the focus of a major initiative in the fede ral government, will mean major changes for every health-care provider, insurer, employer, and patient. Those changes will also shape the way hospitals and other health-care facilities are planned, constructed, and utilized. From a new hospital complex in Florida to a community-based treatment-and-education clinic in Dallas and a high-tech performance center in Houston, health-care architecture by Texas architects is anticipating some of the changes that the future will bring.

38 Health-Cure Design Community Care by Johanna Rowe Facing page, top : The Blultt -Flowers Health Center Is the flag ship of a system of community based centers In Dallas emphasizing di sease prevention. EXPERTS SAY that important changes are going to be required if the U.S. health-care,;yscem is ever going co break out of the upward spiral of costs that hove plagued both government and the private sector in recent dec:icles. 1V1an} ' of those changes, according to the experts, will ;'lffecc the lnrge publicly funded urban teaching hospitals th;1t :ire the backbone of the country's medical system, trcnti ng a majority of chc patients and training a majority of the medical professionals. Such hospitals provide the bulk of health care for poor and working-class people, many of whom are without health insurance, and many of whom have no other source of primary health care. As a result. such patients often come co hospital emergency rooms for basic treatment, or, alternatively, are often in a medical crisis before they seek any care. Th e result is that, too often, expensive high-tech interventions are then needed, when less-expensive preventive care might have worked better. The problem has been that, swamped by a growing popul:nion and rising costs, urban ho spitals have been unable co provide such prevcnrive care.

47 Halting Hospital Noise tion in the philosophy underlying medica l services and hospital design: patienc-cencercd care. In patient-centered care, the efficiency of the conremporary hospital is recognized as necessary but insufficienr. The theory is that patients who are "empowered" parmers with their physicians and other care-givers do better than those who (as in th e traditional model of medical care) are passive recipients of technological int ervention s. Patient s (and members of their families) in such a unit have access to all their records and charts and arc expected to educate thems elves nhout their illnesses and their treatment. Physical and organizational barriers to the privacy, sccur iry, and dignity of the patient and fumily are minimi zed. Planetre e, a health-car e cooperative based in San J ose, Ca lif., has been at the forefront of development of patient-centered care since the enrly I 980s. Plan et ree consulted on the program nting and design of the Trinity Medica l Center pr oject, making it o ne of the fir sr Planetree demonstration unit s oucside Califor niai it wi!j serve as a training ground for hospital sta ff throughout the Trinity system. Gone are the spatially dominant nurs es' station and the typical clutter of cans and equjpment. In its place are a Resource Library (with :i symbolic fireplace) which in the Trinity demonstration pr oject is located opposite the elevator landing, and a smaller-scaled nurses' station that becomes more of a meeting center. The re is also a ''grear room" and a dining room for famil y and pati ent s, and a "qui et room" for co nsultati ons and private momenrs. The furnishings and lighting were chosen for domestic scale and ambience. The success of patient-centered care remains robe me.'lsllred, but its effect on hospit1l planning should be important Joel Warre11 Barna Patient room, window-wall view PRACTICE Hospitals provide yea r-around, around-the-clock residential and sleeping accommodations for patients. But they also generate and are surrounded by noise that creates unacceptable inm.tsions. The architecr planning and designing hospitals needs to be nware of the potential problems that noise can create. Noise can come from nearby highways and roadways, airplane and helicopter overflights, building cooling towers, emergency generators, and construction equipment used for hospital additions or adjacent buildings. Architects of a new faciliry need to evaluate potentinl noise levels, durations, and the time of day of acoustic evenrs, and respond with appropriate siting, orientation, choice of shell materials, and other building-planning panunerers. Patients lose rest and are distressed by noise intrusions from noisy corridors, nurses' stations, and adjacent patient rooms. Evaluation of existing facilities for renovation should include investigation of wall construction, interior-partition to exterior-wall intersections (at window mullions, knee walls, wall-mounted heating/rur conditioning units, etc.), above-ceiling constructions (open-ceiling plenum or head-wall closures, ducrs, pipes, and conduits), and othe r elements. Even though corridor and room configurations may be replications of previously successful designs, careful examination of the corridor, toilet, entry, room, and fumjrure layouts can lead to acoustical privacy improvements. Similar concerns should guide planning for doctors' offices and examination rooms. Not only patient areas but sensitive diagnostic equipment within hospital buildings must be protected from noise and mechankal vibration. Scanning electron microscopes, magnetic resonance imagers, CAT scanners, laser devices, and other crucially needed equipment can be bacily compromised by structure-borne vibration or low-frequency airborne sound-at levels of vibration one to three orders of magnitude below what human tactile sense can detect. Structures therefore must be planned for stiffness, low deflection, and relatively high natural frequencies. In many cases, provision of suitable strucr:nral systems ia high-technology and clean-room spaces, such as laboratories and surgical suites, can increase size and depth of structural members, affecting clear-span or floor-to-floor dimensions. Imaging systems and orher such equipment arc often used with or near clean rooms, in which air is purified by moving large volumes through filtration systems. Clean-room rans are powerful sources of compromising low-frequency noise. Planners must expect to provide generous mechanical support spaces for clenn-room areas, and oversized duct lnyouts co accommodate sound attenuation devices. In the early phases of architectural and financial planning the additional costs and complications of this additional space should be conside red in the building layout and spatial relationships between functional areas. In addition, worker- and patient-occupied spaces should be considered when locaw,g and orienting large openings, including overhead doors, inlet and exhaust mechanical louvers, and rooftop stack exhausts. Adequate space should be programmed in early planning for the additional ceiling plenum and mechanical chase volumes con~-umed by vibrntion isolation, and, in some areas, seismic-restraint systems. Hospitals, laboratory and medical research fuciliries often require supporr shops for fubricacion of prosthetic devices and experimental apparatuses, or for maintenance of research, diagnostic, and patient-care equipment-places where sawing, grinding, metal-impact, and fastening procedures are performed. These must be separated from all other hospital spaces, particularly- administn1tive and patient areas, to keep noise intrusion to a minimum. In addition, the hospit2l planner needs to consider the Long-term effects of noise in central plant and machine-shop areas on the employees. In the early planning process, selection of equipment, arrangement of primary noise sources, and provision of quiet spaces within high-noise areas can prevent worker-hearing damage, create long-term working efficiencies beyond simple hearing protection, and avoid fulure expensive modifications and retrofits. In the practice of engineering noise- and vibration-control solutions for health-care and medical-research facilities, our acoustical consulting firm has encountered each of these problems. Early recognition by the architectural planner of the demands of integrating new technology into the medical facility will ollow innovative and well-conceived design solutions ro replace rhe hnnd-aid approach (pardon the pun) of the pn~t.

Later, you moved on to the real stuff. Have you ever asked yourself "why?" Why masonry? Perhap s it was instinctive. Because masonry is resilient. Sturdy. Tough. You just knew, right from th e beginning, that you could crea te anything with masonry. Any shape. Any size. A fort. Tull buildin gs. The most elaborate castles. Guess what. You still can l Masonry 's natural beau ty, its building qualities, its natural insulatin g propertie s make it the perfect choice for your next building project.
