Webinar: Programming for Tomorrow
Time & Location
About the Event
Before design it is essential to conduct a thorough inventory of a client’s goals and needs, to determine their current and anticipated capacity, and to document the intended outcome of the design process. This process, commonly referred to as programming, will establish the nature, quantity and relationship of spaces, as well as the quality of the new environments. With the imperatives of sustainability and the findings of neuroscience the parameters and significance of programming are about to grow exponentially. This power point discussion will describe the implications of this development, and will explore the relationship between neuro-sensitive design and sustainability. The ultimate goal is a built environment that is conducive to health and well-being. By integrating the priorities of sustainability and lessons from neuroscience a new methodology for programming can prioritize these outcomes
