In Search of Deep Beauty
Neuroaesthetics & Wellness in Design I
This course explores the experience of deep beauty as an indispensable part of restorative design. We explore the neuroaesthetics behind the experience of deep beauty and how it enhances the places where we dwell, work, and play.
The Neurobiology of
Biophilia & Spatial Cognition
This course explores the neurobiology behind Biophilia’s most healing attribute: a visual connection to nature, which also happens to be the feature with the most robust peer-reviewed research backing its therapeutic qualities.
The Restorative Impact of
Perceived Open Space
Explore research on the adverse impact of enclosed interiors . Gain insights into human perception, and how architectural cues can be staged to trigger beneficial responses otherwise obtained by genuine biophilic elements.
In this course, we explore our inherent connection and attraction to nature, identified as The Biophilia Hypothesis, and the ways that our lives are dependently and beneficially intertwined with nature.
