Dr. Julie Zook works to develop theoretical, morphological, and statistical models that advance the capacity of design to act as a technology for addressing the problems of society. Her design teaching and applied research address environments for health and healthcare. Other areas of her current scholarship include developing a spatial history of healthcare environments and examining the nexus of space, perception, and urban form in films.


She frequently presents research on design and health in national and international venues as well as in peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Zook is currently working on an edited book project with Dr. Kerstin Sailer on spatial morphology and healthcare facility design, as well as on a book manuscript on space, perception, and urban form in films.

Dr. Zook joined the College of Architecture in the Fall of 2016.
