"DESIGNING FOR AWARENESS"
A WILDLY DISCIPLINED COURSE FOR DESIGNERS AND ARCHITECTS
MOVING INTO THE FUTURE 8 CPD CREDITS
We believe our designs express and influence our thoughts, feelings and actions
Our exuberance, originality and aesthetic refinement can become someone else's space. Our laziness, dated ideas, and artistic horrors can also become someone else's space. How we are shaped is how we shape our environment, which then shapes all of us.
Presently our human environment is one-sidedly rational, flat, right angled, masculine and object focused.
We can balance this by introducing imagination, sculptural forms, curves, femininity and self reflection. This enlivens our creative process and the items themselves. Through integrating polarities we approach wholeness within ourselves and our human environment.
