WE16 - Design for Happiness

Wednesday, November 28 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM « Back

Abstract Text:

The most common and recurrent goal of human beings is happiness. One of the most powerful tools to create environments that promote happiness is design. During the past decade there has been plenty of research around happiness, but very few development and participation from the Built Environment, so how can we promote among designers a vision that through design we can help individuals reach the happiness desired?
Design is a magic crystal that helps you visualize your environment as it could be, not as it is... through design is the turning point of transformation, future definition, and happiness.
