Design For Humans

Technologically Enhanced Environments and the Human Sensorium – Feb 26th, Toronto: The last quarter century has witnessed a massive transformation in our conception of the human largely facilitated by information technology and a digitally augmented sensorium. This transformation has profound implications for both the medical and the aesthetic disciplines yielding affinities that are relevant to healthcare design.

This conference will begin the public discourse that will be continued in our new Health Design graduate studies program currently in the planning stages. It begins a dialogue between medicine and aesthetics examining the capacity for design to align evidence with intuition, quantitative analysis with qualitative judgment, science with art.
