The Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design of the University of Toronto will held a conference on Architecture Therapeutics Aesthetics from February 26 till February 28. 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. The conference interrogates current ideas and practices defining the role of design in the promotion of health while seeking to foster an appreciation of how the forms of affective and cognitive experience associated with environmental aesthetics may clarify and amplify the goals that motivate therapeutic practices and institutions.
