Toward a Scientific Basis for Architectural Design
Dr. Horsburgh, Professor of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Medicine at Boston University Schools of Medicine and Public Health, will review epidemiologic studies that demonstrate the importance of design features on health and educational outcomes. Studies to be covered include the impact of window views, natural light, quiet and privacy on healing and learning. In addition, Dr. Horsburgh will address the underappreciated value of post-occupancy evaluations in developing a compendium of design features that have been associated with improved healthcare and educational outcomes of users.
