Using Design to Subconsciously Influence Human Behavior
Current scientific research supports that and how environment drives behavior through, color, texture, light and shape influence physiology and drive behavior. Newly emerging field of neuro-architecture is the application of neuroscience to architecture – understanding how design drives behavior and impulse. This course looks at how the design of our built environment influences the subconscious, the brain and the body, initiating complex chemical reactions driving physiology, psychology and behavior. We also explore how shape, texture and design create low-level stress which is responsible for 60-80% of physician visits annually and is responsible for the top three killers in our world today including heart disease and cancer. When stress is present, the restoration response is diminished preventing robust immunity, health, creativity, productivity and especially happiness. Understanding which design cues initiate stress or well-being is vital for all architects and designers going forward, especially in the current pandemic reality where it is necessary to explore the impact of design on human Health, Safety and Wellbeing.
