Florence Nightingale’s redesigned hospitals?
"In his presentation, Kronenburg offered examples of how portable, temporary architecture has been used in every aspect of human activity, including health care (from Florence Nightingale’s redesigned hospitals to the Airstream trailers used as mobile medical clinics during the Kennedy Administration), housing (from yurts to tents to architect Shigeru Ban’s post-earthquake paper houses), culture and commerce (stage sets and Great Exhibition buildings, centuries-old Bouqinistes along the Seine, mobile food, art and music venues offering everything from the recording of stories to tasty crème brulees.)"
Does anyone know what Florence Nightingale’s redesigned hospitals actually mean here? Does it mean the hospitals of Florence Nightingale (I didn't know she had hospitals!) were redesigned by others or by Florence Nightingale herself? I think that requires a bit of knowledge about the history of architecture.
Re: Florence Nightingale’s redesigned hospitals?
She helped improve sanitation in hospitals, so in that sense she helped redesign them.
