Description

Join Metropolis' Avinash Rajagopal and Olson Kundig for a Think Tank discussion on Designing for the Senses: New Perspectives in Hospitality.

Today, as we increasingly find ourselves in a digitally fragmented, technology-oriented world, people are looking for ways to disconnect from their devices and become more present and connect with each other and their surroundings. They seek transformative experiences that provide respite, engagement in the present moment, while also offering authentic, life-changing opportunities that last long after the experience is over. Bringing together architecture, environmental psychology, biophilic and sensory design experts, the panel will explore the intersection of hospitality, wellness, and experiential design. Panelists will discuss strategies for using sensory input – procession, materiality, smell, taste, color, light, and sound – to alter and enhance the biological experience of architecture and space.

Panelists:

Heather Burpee, Research Associate Professor, University of Washington, Integrated Design Lab

Barbara Erwine, Architectural consultant, Educator, and Writer

Judith Heerwagen, PhD, Affiliate Associate Professor, University of Washington, Architecture Department

Kevin M. Kudo-King, AIA, LEED® AP, Principal/Owner, Olson Kundig
