The Science in Design

Science now tells us that the need for beauty and fine design are deeply rooted in our evolutionary inheritance. This seminar will explore the many scientific findings that support design’s ability to improve  health and wellbeing. The seminar will discuss the importance of our subconscious, the need for nature, the new technology that “predicts” eye and brain attention, and the marketing of the health benefits our industry provides. The subject matter is cutting edge and represents a paradigm shift for our industry.
