We've all walked into a building or home where it was immediately apparent that the inhabitants were the last thing on the minds of the builders. These structures can feel oppressive, heavy, industrial, and unwelcoming. Space & Harmony examines a crucial aspect of architecture and design that remains largely ignored: the psychological impact a building's design can have upon its occupants. Potentially harmful factors discussed include monotony, noise, incompatible colors, poor or inadequate lighting, and the "zoo effect". During this course you will explore innovative designs for healthy dwellings, with special emphasis on their influence in creating ergonomic traffic patterns and a sense of flowing spaciousness, and how to best introduce a sense of variety and harmony to a home or workplace that lessens the impact of human psychological stressors.
