Seminar - Roundtable Discussion: The Hidden Psychology of Safe Space

Donald Rattner | Architect, Author, Educator, Donald M. Rattner Architects

Read More Read Less

Synopsis

Discussions of occupant safety within the context of building design usually focus on practical and tangible methods for protecting users from physical harm. The problem, however, is that equating safety largely with bodily injury risks overlooking the enormous influence that non-conscious human psychology plays in assessing how secure we feel in our environment. The equally important goal of ensuring the user’s mental as well as physical wellbeing therefore remains unaddressed.

Fortunately, we now have a great deal of research showing how certain elements in the built and natural environments influence how safe or dangerous we intuit a place to be. Many of these elements exert their influence from deep within the human psyche, where they endure as a legacy of our evolutionary past. Rather than dismiss these unseen agents as irrational or irrelevant to modern life, however, design professionals can capitalize on our newfound insights to develop techniques for shaping space that people will feel as well as know to be safe.

Among the techniques to be discussed are furnishings, materials, and color.  Basic concepts underlying the psychology of safe space will also be explored.

Seminar - Roundtable Discussion: It’s Been a Hell of a Year!

Synopsis

This event reflects the upheaval caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic. We have been working remotely, meeting virtually, and forced to reinvent our design practices and businesses to accommodate the rapid and unexpected changes that have emerged. While nobody has a crystal ball, we will look both backwards and forward to collectively discuss what we think may be coming as we emerge into the post pandemic world.Participants should leave the roundtable with an understanding of how they and their peers will better be able to negotiate the changes that have evolved in the A&D community over the past year. Concrete suggestions for moving ahead can be established by sharing with others the experience of working through the disruption of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Biography

Elise has built a long career based on her training as an architect to plan, design and manage projects for corporate, educational, and institutional entities. Her main focus over the past twenty years was in the corporate sector, focusing on workplace planning, design, and project management. For the past four years she has enjoyed being a Contributing Editor for Work Design Magazine a digital publication that explores all aspects of the workplace and those who design, manage and provision it.
